There is currently no available medication for stress incontinence.

The procedure is usually performed in a hospital under general or spinal anesthesia. However it is now available in clinics or in private operating rooms depending on the technique used. The procedure usually lasts 15-30 minutes.
The patient is placed in the exaggerated lithotomy position with the heels placed in high flexible stirrups in order to maximize the explosion. The surgical area is then disinfected using proviodine. A sterile surgical drape is then placed.
A urinary catheter is installed temporarily for the duration of the surgical intervention. A short incision of 2 to 3 cm from the vaginal mucosa is made under the urethra. A dissection is conducted under the vaginal wall and on each side of the urethra straight to the lower pubic branch. A space is then created through digital palpation in order to positioning of the tape. There may be slight bleeding. The wound is the closed using absorbable wire.
La chirurgie peut être est réalisée en cabinet privé ou en en salle d'opération privée, elle est alors prévue dans le seul hôpital privé accrédité au Québec, soit au Centre Métropolitain de Chirurgie.
