        Take-Away Points of the Presentation

        1. Stress urinary incontinence is a highly prevalent condition which is defined as the involuntary loss of urine associated with exertion such as coughing or sneezing or another.

        2. There are various office based treatment options available including physical therapy, pessary or periurethral bulking.

        3. The midurethral polypropylene mesh sling has been extensively studied and is considered to be standard of care for the surgical treatment of stress urinary incontinence.
