Abstract: Stress urinary incontinence is a common pathologic condition in society and an increasing socio-economic challenge. Current artificial urinary sphincters for severe cases have high failure rates, cannot be applied sex-independent and their handling is not intuitive. To address these issues, a novel intraurethral closure system was developed. It works without an external energy supply and consists of an inflatable balloon that presses against the inner contour of a surrounding cylindrical structure implanted in the urethra. Regulation of the closure system is achieved by the interaction of the three main components: the closure balloon, the throttle and the compensating reservoir. The developed closing mechanism seals the bladder at rest and during short peak loads and opens only when the bladder pressure is increased by pressing with the abdominals for a longer period of time for micturition.
