    Article - En anglais


    To describe the impact of surgery for stress incontinence on the severity of symptoms, other mental and physical symptoms, and overall health.

    To describe the incidence of postoperative complications.


    Prospective cohort study ; questionnaires completed by patients before and 3,6, and 12 months after surgery.

    Questionnaires completed by surgeons both before and after surgery.
