Macroplastique® / Plastique® Family of Products

Macroplastique® for Stress Urinary Incontinence is an injectable soft-tissue bulking agent used to treat adult female stress urinary incontinence (SUI) primarily due to intrinsic sphincter deficiency (ISD). The soft, textured Macroplastique implants are made of solid silicone elastomer and suspended in a watersoluble, bio-excretable carrier gel.

The indications for Macroplastique are different in the US and outside of the US. Outside of the US, MPQ is indicated to treat female SUI primarily due to Intrinsic Sphincter Deficiency (ISD). It is also used to treat males with SUI typically following a TURP or radical prostatectomy. MPQ can also treat vesicoureteral reflux.

In a multi-center clinical trial, Macroplastique demonstrated excellent clinical efficacy.

What is Macroplastique® / Plastique®?

Macroplastique® Implants is a sterile, nonpyrogenic, latex-free, injectable tissue bulking agent comprised of flexible, soft textured implants of heat-vulcanized polydimethylsiloxane (a solid silicone elastomer) suspended in a bio-excretable polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) carrier gel. When implanted in the urethral wall between the mid-urethra and the bladder neck, the implants bulk tissue and create coaptation of the urethra.
