Course summary:
In this workshop we will discuss some of the controversies related to the use of vaginal mesh for the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse and incontinence, specifically addressing how this impacts on our decision making with regards to treatment options for stress urinary incontinence.

We will give an overview of the available urethral bulking agents for the treatment of SUI.  We will present the Bulkamid outcome and safety data, including the results of the RCT comparing Bulkamid to TVT-R.
