Abstract

We treated 20 male and 7 female patients with total urinary incontinence of variable etiology by construction of 4 different forms of the anterior bladder flap tube. The Tanagho procedure was used in 10 patients and 3 variants of the operation were fashioned to correct the particular defects present in the remaining 17. The high success rate of 85 per cent is due largely to the selection of the proper form of the tube for each case of urinary incontinence.
