'Sling' Implant May Cut Risk of Incontinence After Prolapse Surgery

She offers women the option of doing the prolapse repair and the preventive incontinence surgery at the same time, or doing the prolapse repair and waiting to see if the patient is bothered by incontinence afterward.

About 31 percent in the sling group developed a urinary tract infection, compared with 18 percent in the prolapse-repair only group. Another complication more common among
