Abstract

Typical genuine stress urinary incontinence is the result of an anatomic defect, with most procedures designed to restore the support of the proximal urethra and bladder neck. Complications associated with these procedures have been presented to help facilitate an understanding of their etiology and prevention. Careful attention to patient selection, history and physical examination, and surgical detail can prevent most of these complications.
