A suburethral sling procedure using a Mersilene mesh has been performed in 24 patients. Six patients had recurrent incontinence after an unsuccessful past operation. A postoperative follow-up was done for an average of 24 months. Twenty-three patients were free of symptoms, while only 1 patient had recurrent incontinence. The suburethral sling procedure can be applied to all patients, particularly for recurrent stress urinary incontinence, with reasonable cure rates when performed with a proper technique.
