This article is about a 60 year old patient, who consulted for recurrent incontinence, without a correct clinical diagnostic and without a correct paraclinical evaluation; with the consequent therapeutic failure. At the moment of the consultation, she had a recurrent urinary incontinence. All failures evaluated, we proposed that the patient be treated with an intra-urethral sphincter prosthesis. This is an alternative treatment with a high percentage of success and for the first time in practice in Uruguay. The post-treatment evolution has been satisfactory.
Key Words: Recurrent urinary incontinence; Valvular prosthesis.
