abstract

  • Midurethral slings have been widely adopted by urologists over the last decade. Increase in sling usage coincided with a drastic decline in traditional repairs, implying that the newer midurethral slings were replacing these traditional procedures for the treatment of female incontinence. In addition, the fact that the use of periurethral injections did not change significantly during this time period indicates that increased sling usage is responsible for most of the decline in traditional repairs.
