Abstract

Urinary incontinence in children is multifactorial, and thus numerous medical and surgical modalities exist to treat it. In patients with congenital incompetence of the bladder neck/sphincteric mechanism or leak from a continent catheterizable channel, a viable minimally invasive option is cystoscopic-guided injection of bulking agents. In this chapter, indications, surgical techniques, complications, and outcomes of bulking agent injection therapy for urinary incontinence will be discussed.
