Transvaginal bladder neck suspension: a safer method.


:A new modification of transvaginal technique of bladder neck suspension is described. Its main merit is its safety. The ligature-carrying needles are inserted from below rather than above. It virtually eliminates bladder injury. Our experience with 29 cases and a follow-up of six to thirty months shows that this technique is as successful as other similar procedures in controlling genuine stress incontinence.
