Stress urinary incontinence is still an embarrassing problem, even though it affects a huge number of women of all ages. The condition often appears with age, but it also occurs in young women, especially after childbirth. Stress urinary incontinence manifests itself in involuntary urine leakage during physical activity, laughing, sneezing or coughing. This problem is extremely troublesome and causes great discomfort in everyday life of patients. Modern medicine - and more specifically, urogynaecology - comes to help.
Suburethral tape placement surgery involves transvaginal implantation of a synthetic tape under the urethra. This is done to allow the urethra to close on the underlying tape during physical activity.
Why is it worth it?
The problem of urinary incontinence is extremely bothersome and excludes women struggling with it from normal functioning. That is why one should trust modern gynaecology and the experience of specialists in order to significantly improve comfort and quality of life. Effectiveness of the treatment with the use of tape, with correct indications, is estimated at 95%, so the results are very satisfactory.

How often repeat
A correctly performed procedure does not require repetition. Occasionally, recurrences happen after many years due to anatomical changes related to age or changing body weight.
