Urethral & Bladder Slings for Women

By

In women with stress uri­nary incon­ti­nence, pelvic mus­cles and tis­sue have been weak­ened by preg­nan­cy, child­birth, trau­ma, radi­a­tion, pri­or surgery, mus­cle dam­age or hor­mon­al changes, caus­ing the blad­der and ure­thra to relax from their nor­mal posi­tions. A sling helps to cor­rect the con­di­tions that cause stress uri­nary incon­ti­nence with a mesh mate­r­i­al that sup­ports the urethra.
