Abstract

Symptoms of stress and urge incontinence in 12/16 patients with the 'tethered vagina syndrome' were substantially cured by insertion of a free graft in the vagina in the area of bladder neck. The operation works by restoring elasticity in the vagina below bladder neck, thus allowing the bladder neck and urethral closure mechanisms to operate independently.
