Abstract

Abstract A minor operative procedure involving the excision of bilateral small elliptical 1 × 0.5 cm pieces of vaginal mucosa is described as a proposed alternative to a Kelly Repair. Twelve month success rate was 47%. The modus operandi of the procedure is examined with reference to the Integral Theory of Female Urinary Incontinence, as are the possible reasons for the operative failure. 1990 Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand
