Implantable Incontinence Devices
Many surgical techniques have been described to improve bladder neck and distal urethral function when they are either congenitally weak or have been ablated or damaged surgically. What can be done depends to a certain extent on the basic pathology and how much surgery has already been carried out. Techniques such as Young-Dees (Dees 1949) or Leadbetter procedures (Leadbetter 1964) do have their place although the overall results are not very satisfactory.
