Abstract

In January of 1959, Armand J. Pereyra introduced a new approach in the surgical treatment of female urinary stress incontinence. Pereyra spent two decades experimenting with operative materials and various surgical techniques, revising his needle suspension procedure into the form we recognize today: the modified Pereyra procedure. This vignette documents events surrounding the development of the operation, its subsequent evolution, and related biographical details of the life of Dr Pereyra. Documentation indicates that all significant modifications of the needle suspension were performed by Pereyra initially.
