Caption

Incontinence implant. Coloured frontal X-ray of the pelvic region of a 62-year-old male patient with an artificial urinary sphincter (white, circular, lower centre) implant to control urinary incontinence. This device is a doughnut-shaped sac that encircles the urethra and is filled and expanded using fluid to squeeze the urethra closed. By pressing a valve (white circle, upper left) implanted under the skin, the artificial sphincter can be deflated. This removes pressure from the urethra, allowing urine from the bladder to pass.
