TOT: BLADDER SLING
Stress incontinence can occur when weak pelvic floor muscles, or pressure from other organs shift or weaken the bladder neck. When the bladder neck is out of place, the urethral sphincter may not be able to keep the bladder neck closed under physical stress. The surgically implanted sling corrects stress incontinence by supporting and repositioning the bladder neck and urethra in their correct position, which can help the urethral sphincter function properly. The end result is that after a sling procedure, most women can regain control of their bladder.
