THD Sphinkeeper treatment convinces


Faecal incontinence affects up to 7.4% of the total population - in Austria alone, it is estimated that one in nine people is affected by urinary and/or faecal incontinence. Removing the stigma and helping those affected quickly and successfully is at the centre of the efforts of the team around OA Dr. Wolfgang Werkl and FA Dr. Azat Pasha from General Hospital Iin Wolfsberg, Austria. The new Sphinkeeper technology from THD makes it possible to treat faecal incontinence quickly, safely and minimally invasively with minimal complications known.

OA Dr Werkl explains: "The self-expanding prostheses are implanted in the intersphincteric space. This has allowed us to achieve lasting results in our patients without proven prosthesis migration."
