Surgical treatment of stress urinary incontinence, the involuntary loss of urine on effort or physical exertion, or on sneezing or coughing, has seen many changes since its inception. Surgical approach (abdominal versus vaginal), anatomic space (retropubic versus transobturator), and materials utilized (grafts, sutures or native tissue) vary widely between procedures.

A writing group made up of members of AUGS and IUGA has been working on developing a clinically-based terminology document that comprehensively assigns terms to widely practiced surgical procedures employed by obstetrician-gynecologists, urologists, and urogynecologists to treat stress urinary incontinence in women.
