Vast majority of foreign bodies are from iatrogenic interventions (slings, tvt, IUCD, vaginal pessaries, contraceptive diaphragms, eroded silk following radical prostatectomy, intra prostatic stents, eroded penile prosthesis, artificial urinary sphincters
, and long term urinary drainage etc.
Obstructive procedures can be done surgically to increase intra-urethral pressure passively or actively, including retropubic, mid-urethral slings, bulking agents or artificial urinary sphincters
