Altis® is a surgical mesh product developed by Coloplast, a global medical device company, for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women. SUI is a condition in which urine leaks out of the bladder during physical activity, such as coughing, sneezing, or exercise.
Altis® is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves inserting a small, flexible mesh implant through a small incision in the vagina. The mesh is then positioned under the urethra and secured to nearby tissues, providing additional support to the bladder and reducing the symptoms of SUI. It offers a safe and effective treatment option for women with SUI, helping them to regain control of their lives and improve their quality of life.« Back to Glossary Index
