Brief Summary:
This study evaluates the effectiveness of mesenchymal stem cells in treatment of stress urinary incontinence due to intrinsic sphincter deficiency; in which the problem is weakness or damage of the sphincter muscle responsible for continence. Mesenchymal stem cells are undifferentiated cells which can undergo self-renewal & differentiation into other cell types like muscle cells; thus can be used to regenerate the damaged sphincter muscles. In this study mesenchymal stem cells will be obtained from bone marrow from the patient, processed, & then re-injected periurethrally. Effectiveness will be compared to that of the surgical treatment (tension-free vaginal tape).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Stem cells,Mesenchymal
Periurethral injection of autologous bone-marrow derived stem cells.
Biological: Stem Cells,Mesenchymal
The patient will be placed in lithotomy position. A Foley's catheter (size 18) will be inserted in the urethra, then under local anaesthesia; retrieved cells (total 20- 30 million cells per patient in 10cc syringe) will be injected into the submucosal tissue at the level of the proximal urethra just distal to the bladder neck (guided by stretch on the Foley's catheter), at 3,9,12 o'clock, injecting around 3.5 cc in each site.

Active Comparator: surgery (TVT)
Tension-free vaginal tape operation: a midurethral sling operation
Procedure: surgery (TVT)
A small midurethral incision will be made in the vaginal mucosa, then a polypropylene 40*1cm mesh tape attached to two curved trocars will be passed lateral to the urethra & through the endopelvic fascia into the retropubic space. The trocar will then be passed along the back of the pubic bone, through the rectus fascia, in two small suprapubic skin incisions, then the tension on the tape adjusted & the remaining tape cut off at the level of the skin.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. change in cough test & urodynamic study as a measure of efficacy of treatment [ Time Frame: before & after therapy each 3 months for one year (at 3m, 6m, 9m, 12m post-injection). ]
    cough test: as positive or negative leakage with cough. Urodynamic study: changes in abdominal leak point pressure, and changes in maximum urethral closure pressure

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Quality of life as measured by the Incontinence Quality of Life (I-QOL) Instrument Score [ Time Frame: before & after therapy each 3 months for one year (at 3m, 6m, 9m, 12m post-injection). ]
