The ZSI 375 is an artificial urinary sphincter made from medical grade silicone rubber. It treats urinary incontinence by mimicking a healthy sphincter.
The device is fitted with an inflatable and adjustable cuff that fits around the urethra.
The pump, with the pressure regulating tank, is fitted within the scrotum.
The cuff is inflated. The urethra is compressed. The patient is continent.
When the patient wants to urinate, he squeezes and releases the pump located in the scrotum.
The pump deflates the cuff and the cuff decompresses the urethra. The patient voids. The bladder is emptied.
After 2-3 minutes the cuff automatically re-inflates. The patient is continent once again.
