Involuntary urinary incontinence in women can often be seen during physical exertion that causes stress (stress incontinence) such as coughing, sneezing, and sneezing. Yeditepe University Koşuyolu Hospital Gynecology and Obstetrics Specialist Prof. Dr. Orhan Ünal, in the development of this problem; He stated that risk factors such as age, number of births, difficult births, obesity, smoking, chronic cough, constipation, bladder prolapse, previous pelvic surgery or injury, urinary system infections and menopause play an important role.
There are different underlying factors
Stating that for female patients who applied to them with the complaint of urinary incontinence, they determined whether the abduction developed due to infection by first looking at urinalysis and culture. Dr. Orhan Ünal said the following on the subject: “If the underlying cause is not infection, an examination is made to see if there is uterine prolapse in the genital system. At the same time, it is investigated whether there is a problem in the contraction of the bladder muscle. In order to understand this, we use various examinations called urodynamics. Urine escaping with cough and sneezing is called "stress incontinence". The solution to this is surgery. Drug therapy is used for disorders caused by the bladder wall. Apart from this, there may be complaints such as coughing, not being able to reach the toilet that is not during laughing, and incontinence when urine comes, treatment is medical. Surgical methods are not effective in these abductions. Surgical methods are also applied in urinary incontinence problems due to sagging of the uterus or sagging of the vaginal wall. "
Surgical methods can give good results
Saying that sling operations are among the most frequently used surgical procedures for urinary incontinence in women, and that they are based on supporting the bladder neck and urethra, Prof. Dr. Orhan Ünal informed that TVT, TOT and mini sling techniques are other methods applied.

The patient is discharged the next day after the operation, and can quickly return to his daily life. Success rates are very high and good results are obtained in the long term. "Thanks to these surgical procedures, which have very low complication rates, the patient's quality of life increases and his self-confidence is restored.
