Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)
A component of urinary incontinence (the loss of bladder control), stress incontinence is most often described as a sudden, unintentional release of urine during coughing, sneezing, laughing, getting up from a seated position, or with other physical activities such as running, jumping, exercise, etc. This type of incontinence is most commonly treated with a Burch or sling procedure. These two surgeries focus on urethral suspension and not bladder support. Supporting the urethra is the best way to stop stress urinary leakage.
