• The Solace Balloon is inserted into the natural opening of the bladder called the urethra. Insertion takes about 10 minutes and is performed in the doctor’s office/clinic.
• No anesthesia is needed.
• You can resume your normal daily activities immediately following the procedure.
• There are no restrictions or limitations to your lifestyle following the Solace Balloon procedure.
A deflated Solace Balloon
is delivered into the bladder
through a protective tube.
The Solace Balloon is inflated,
released, and the protective
tube is removed.
• The Solace Balloon is removed under direct visualization through a protective tube using a grasper. A new Solace Balloon is inserted through the same protective tube. This takes less than 10 minutes and does not require any anesthesia.
• You are able to resume your normal daily activities after the Solace Balloon has been exchanged.
A grasper is inserted into
the bladder through a
protective tube and grasps
the Solace Balloon.
The grasper deflates the Solace Balloon. The grasper and deflated Solace Balloon are removed, and a new Solace Balloon is inserted.
The Solace Procedure is currently being evaluated in several clinical study locations in Europe. The Solace Balloon behaves like a “cushion” in the bladder during moments of increased abdominal pressure. The Solace Balloon absorbs sudden pressure changes within the bladder, reducing or eliminating urine leakage.
