Mid- Urethral Sling for Urinary Leakage
Urinary leakage in women is caused by physical activities such as sneezing, laughing, coughing, jumping, lifting, exercise or other similar activities is termed Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). This is a very common condition that affects women following childbirth and/or aging. Mild SUI may be successfully treated with pelvic floor exercises such as Kegels; however more severe leakage needs surgical correction of the ligament that supports the urethra (outlet of the bladder).
The Mid-Urethral Mesh Tape Sling was first introduced in the U.S. in 1998 and since has become the most studied and most common treatment option for female SUI throughout the world. Our doctors were one of the first surgeons to bring this technology to the U.S and are one of the leading teachers of surgeons in the U.S. and worldwide on this technology. Although mesh use in pelvic surgery has been given a bad name in the media and elsewhere, the FDA as well as the American Urogynecologic Society, the International Urogynecologic Society, the American Urologic Association and others, have all released position statements confirming that Mesh Tape Slings are still considered gold-standard treatment for female SUI.
