Surgical Management of Stress Incontinence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The aim was to describe contemporary surgical procedures for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women. The 4 most commonly performed surgical procedures for the treatment of SUI were reviewed using standardized terminology. We addressed the history and evolution of the procedures as well as the mechanisms of action by which they work. Efficacy and safety data were also presented. Midurethral Sling, Pubovaginal Sling, Retropubic Colposuspension, and Urethral Bulking are safe and effective procedures. Midurethral Sling, Pubovaginal Sling, Retropubic Colposuspension, and Urethral Bulking are contemporary procedures for the treatment of SUI in women.
