Case Discussion

The presence of the TVT reflects a previous attempt at treating the stress urinary incontinence. However there is marked descent of the urinary bladder on evacuation, and this with the change in urethral angle are anatomical changes that contribute to stress incontinence. There is also rectal descent along with a rectocele. The imaging findings can explain all of the symptoms.
