Over the past decade, urethral slings have emerged as the procedure of choice for the surgical correction of most types of female urinary stress incontinence. A variety of materials, autologous, alloplastic, and synthetic, have been used successfully as urethral slings. In the next decade, it is hoped that a better understanding of the factors that influence surgical success will translate into continued refinement of surgical technique.
