Department of Urology, Weil Cornell Medical School, 445 East 77th Street, New York, NY 10075, USA.


This article provides an update on the surgical technique and long-term outcome of the full-length autologous rectus fascial sling in the treatment of women with sphincteric incontinence. The autologous fascial puovaginal sling remains the gold standard against which other surgeries for treating sphincteric incontinence should be compared. The authors have demonstrated that this procedure can be performed in a reproducible fashion with minimal morbidity.
