Abstract

We have presented our technique for and experience with splitting the symphysis to provide wide exposure in reconstructive surgery for incontinence. Our experience has demonstrated that the technique is widely applicable to many reconstructive situations in patients of all ages. We believe that spreading the pubic symphysis provides access to the urethra and bladder neck not otherwise possible and regard it as an important factor in the success of many difficult operations to correct incontinence. Although seemingly a radical maneuver, it did not cause complications in any of 51 cases.
