ABSTRACT
The case of a 50-year-old patient who had undergone male to female gender reassignment surgery is presented. She presented with mixed incontinence with symptoms of stress incontinence predominating. Initial conservative treatment was unsuccessful and subsequent videourodynamic assessment demonstrated urodynamic stress incontinence in association with a partially open bladder neck at rest. Also noted during the study was cough-induced detrusor overactivity. The option of inserting a pubo-vaginal sling using autologous rectus sheath was chosen. The procedure proved to be straightforward to perform and was uncomplicated. Subsequent follow-up demonstrated a resolution of her stress incontinence.
