This product has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is not available for sale in the United States.

ContiClassic® Artificial Urinary Sphincter is used to treat urinary incontinence due to sphincter deficiency in cases such as incontinence following prostate surgery.

The ContiClassic® Artificial Urinary Sphincter is a surgical treatment option when non-surgical or behavioral treatment options fail. Artificial Urinary Sphincter placement is regarded as the “gold standard” in the surgical treatment of stress urinary incontinence.

The ContiClassic® Artificial Urinary Sphincter will mimic the role of a healthy urinary sphincter (the two muscles controlling the exit of urine from the bladder through the urethra). Artificial Urinary Sphincter will close the urethra preventing urine leakage. The patient will squeeze a pump located in his scrotum to release the cuff over the urethra and void. The cuff will return to its closed state in around 2 minutes to prevent urine leakage after voiding. ContiClassic® Artificial Urinary Sphincter has a larger variety of occlusive cuff size options. This will enable your urologist to choose the occlusive cuff that fits best with your urethral anatomy. In some cases, double-cuff placement might be preferred.

ContiClassic® Artificial Urinary Sphincter incorporates a hydrophilic coating on all device surfaces.
