Bladder and urethral repair - series
Stress incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine when laughing, coughing, sneezing, or lifting. It can result from damage to the urethra, bladder, and supporting muscle and tissues, caused by multiple births, menopause, or other problems.
Bladder and urethral repair may be recommended to prevent urine leakage associated with stress incontinence.
