Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Improvement of urinary incontinence based on 24-hour pad test [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The primary effectiveness end point will be improvement in pad weight defined as at least a 50% reduction in 24-hour pad weight from baseline to 12-months.

  • Safety of the device characterized by reported adverse events [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety of the device, including the implant procedure.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Improvement of urinary incontinence based on 24-hour pad test [ Time Frame: Baseline, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 2 years, 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Improvement of urinary incontinence based on number of pad used [ Time Frame: baseline,1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Subject reported improvement measured by the PGI-I [ Time Frame: 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment of the frequency, severity and impact on quality of life of urinary incontinence based on ICIQ-UI short form [ Time Frame: baseline, 1 months, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years and 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Patient satisfaction questionaire [ Time Frame: 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety of the device characterized by reported adverse events [ Time Frame: Intraoperative, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 2 years, 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety of the device, including the implant procedure.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Virtue® Male Sling Device: Virtue® Male Sling
The Coloplast Virtue® Male Sling is a Class II, implantable, sub-urethral, permanent, non-absorbable support sling indicated for the surgical treatment of male stress urinary incontinence (SUI) resulting from intrinsic sphincter deficiency (ISD).
