Abstract

The mechanism of urinary continence is complicated and is poorly understood. One current opinion is that there is an absence or weakness of the endopelvic fascial supports of the urethra. Pubovaginal slings are rapidly becoming the surgical procedure of choice in the management of urodynamic stress incontinence but their method of action is unclear. This study using magnetic resonance imaging shows how a pubovaginal sling can restore the normal anatomy and continence and adds to the global understanding of this condition.
