    Hi Ted
    In this site you can find a connection of Remeex in USA; They say as I quote “SYLMAR, Calif. -- Tri-anim, the nation's largest provider of specialty sales and distribution solutions for healthcare, announced today that it will launch the Remeex[TM] Male Adjustable Sling System, a revolutionary minimally invasive adjustable product for male urinary incontinence, at AUA 2007 in Anaheim, California (May 19-24)”.

    In this forum some guys have reported on the sling too. You can have a look at below post named “Inter-stim vs. Botox (or other effective steps to solve severe incontinence)

    Another site of interest to incontinence cases may be this;

    THanks VAS. I have read the trials in Europe and the results are amazing if you can trust them. Around 80% completely dry during the trial. I also read a post from 2009 on another site that Dr Marc Stein of Advanced Urology in NY city (212-673-7300) quotes his success rate at 75%-80% with 100% leakage stopped. This sling has been used in Europe since 2001 and approved for use in the USA since 2006. Wonder why I have not heard more about it? Maybe not covered by insurance?
