Urinary Incontinence is defined as the unintended loss of urine through the urinary sphincter. There are several types of urinary incontinence but the most common type of urinary incontinence is stress urinary incontinence, caused by pelvic organ prolapse. Stress urinary incontinence is caused by physical movements such as laughing, coughing, running, and heavy lifting. There are several treatment options for urinary incontinence but treatment through transvaginal mesh slings is one of the most popular long term treatment options.
