Female urinary incontinence affects approximately 10% of the population at some point in their lives. Urinary incontinence affects both women and men; however, there is a greater prevalence of incontinence amongst women. The difference is often attributed to changes that occur during pregnancy and childbirth as well as additional factors such as menopause. There are four main categories recognized for urinary incontinence, with 50% of cases diagnosed as stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Surgical treatment using a urinary incontinence sling is one of the most recommended options to help SUI patients become incontinence-free.
