INJECTABLE BULKING AGENT FOR VESICOURETERAL REFLUX DISEASE
Durasphere injectable bulking agent, is indicated for use in the treatment of vesicoureteral reflux when the patient’s condition can be helped by a sub-ureteric injection of a bulking agent. These injections should only be initiated in vesicoureteral reflux patients who have failed conservative management. Durasphere is composed of pyrolytic carbon-coated beads suspended in a water-based gel.
HOW IT WORKS
Durasphere is used as a tissue bulking agent that is injected around the ureteral opening to prevent urine from flowing back up from the bladder through the ureters. Over time, the body's own collagen deposits around the pyrolytic carbon-coated beads. The final bulking result derives from the combination of the pyrolytic carbon-coated beads and the body’s own collagen.
