A vaginal sling procedure, also called a pubovaginal sling, is a type of surgery that helps women who have urinary incontinence.
Urinary incontinence is a loss of control of the bladder. It can be a reaction to a physical activity, a sudden urge, or dribbling after urination, and may be caused by aging, damage, or a condition.
Bowel incontinence is a loss of bowel control that results in involuntary fecal elimination. Injury to the pelvic muscles, lower end of the intestine, muscles in the anus, or the nervous system can cause this.
