Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To determine the efficacy of the sling procedure in curing genuine stress incontinence in women.

PATIENTS AND METHODS:

Thirty-two women underwent the pubovaginal fascial sling procedure because of genuine stress incontinence. Currently, the patients are still monitored in order to check the efficiency of the treatment.

RESULTS:

The patients have been followed for a period of 5 years, and 30 patients are cured from stress urinary incontinence. One patient is improved, one is lost to follow up. Five patients experience intermittent minor degree of urge incontinence. Two patients have to perform clean intermittent catheterization (CIC) from time to time; one also did this before the operation.

CONCLUSION:

The sling procedure is a superior operation for patients that suffer from genuine stress incontinence, and should be the first choice of treatment.
