Boston Scientific Sponsors New Patient Portal Dedicated to Pelvic Floor Disorders
Date:9/15/2011

ttee Chair.  "It is important to raise awareness for those suffering in silence from PFD so they can take the first steps toward seeking treatment from their doctor."

An estimated 28.1 million women(1) in the U.S. live with at least one pelvic floor disorder.  The two most common conditions are urinary incontinence, defined as the involuntary leakage of urine or inability to hold urine, and pelvic organ prolapse, a medical condition that occurs when the normal support of the vagina is lost, resulting in "sagging" or dropping of the bladder, uterus or rectum.  Women often suffer in silence with these conditions due to embarrassment about their symptoms.  One published study(2) reported that a third of women wait at least one to five years before seeking medical treatment while a quarter of women wait more than five years.  

Boston Scientific's Women's Health business offers products for pelvic floor reconstruction, as well as a complete line of mid-urethral sling systems for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence.  Boston Scientific is presenting its latest innovations at Booth 507 in the Exhibition Hall.

U.S. law restricts medical devices to sale by or on the order of a physician.
