What is Urinary Incontinence?

The involuntary release of urine from the bladder, causing leakage that a person can't control.

It's common, especially among older adults, and can result from weakened pelvic muscles, age, pregnancy, or medical conditions.

Women experiencing urinary stress incontinence encounter urine leakage during abrupt activities like exercise, coughing, laughing, sneezing, running, heavy lifting, and sexual activity. This issue can significantly disrupt their daily routines.

Procedures

Burch Colposuspension

Secure the bladder neck and urethra to nearby ligaments or tissues to provide additional support and prevent involuntary urine leakage during activities that put pressure on the bladder, such as coughing, sneezing, or physical exertion.

Burch colposuspension aims to restore proper anatomical positioning and function of the pelvic organs to address stress urinary incontinence. It is typically performed through an abdominal incision and may be done as an open surgery or laparoscopically.

Tension-Free Vaginal Tape-Obturator (TVT-O)

A minimally invasive technique where synthetic tape is inserted through the vaginal wall and positioned underneath the urethra. This tape acts as support to prevent involuntary urine leakage.

The "obturator" aspect of the procedure refers to the pathway used for tape insertion, which involves passing the tape through small incisions near the inner thigh.

TVT-O is designed to provide long-lasting relief from stress urinary incontinence by offering support to the weakened pelvic structures that contribute to the condition.
