Stem Cells offer Hope for Urinary Incontinence Cure

It is estimated that nearly 15 million Americans suffer Urinary incontinence and this news will certainly come as major relief. According to a recent finding, medical specialists have been able to cure urinary incontinence in most of the patients with injections made from the patients' own muscle tissue.

After this treatment, the researchers have confirmed that the patients will not need to wear pads, as this is more like a cure for the troubling ailment.

Lead author Hannes Strasser "It's highly effective and it's much more effective than we previously thought. If somebody had told me it would have worked so well four years ago, I would not have believed it."

The finding had been confirmed after studying the effects of this stem cell treatment on 186 men and women aged 36 to 85. According to Strasser, nearly 153 out of them did not feel the need to use pads one year after the treatment, which improved their quality of life.

The stem cell treatment is estimated at about $16,000. No major side effects have been reported except from one among the 270 who underwent the treatment, and suffered a rupture of the urethra.
