The THD Sphinkeeper is the new method of treating faecal incontinence. The method involves implanting specifically designed self-expandable prostheses into the intersphincteric space.
10 sterile self-expandable prostheses are implanted into the intersphincteric space. Once expanded, a shape memory doughnut is created between the IAS and the EAS like a third artificial anal sphincter.
THD SphinKeeper® implants are made with HYEXPAN, a patented THD material with SHAPE MEMORY.
- No allergenic
- No immunogenic
- Non carcenogenic
Studies conclude that implantation is not followed by septic or adverse reactions, does not result in short term dislodgement and is well tolerated.
