Abstract

Abstract Ten patients are presented with symptoms of urinary stress and/or urgency. Eight were cured by approximation of the uterosacral ligaments. This supports the contention of the Integral Theory of Female Urinary Incontinence that a loosely tethered supralevator vagina may be an important element in urinary incontinence, especially following hysterectomy. 1990 Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand
