Abstract

Multiple behavioral and surgical treatments exist for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). We report herein on the safety and efficacy of the transobturator vaginal tape inside out (TVT-O) procedure for patients with SUI. A retrospective study of 102 consecutive patients with SUI who underwent the TVT-O procedure was conducted. Pre and postoperative evaluations included urodynamic studies and a 60-min pad test. Based on the 4th and 8th week postoperative evaluations, 97 of 102 (95%) patients had a complete cure. Of 88 patients who were followed for 12 months, 84 (95%) achieved a complete cure. Two instances of intraoperative lateral vaginal sulcus perforation occurred. Pain over the inner thigh was noted in 17 (17%) patients. Mesh erosion was noted in one case. TVT-O procedure is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive procedure for SUI with a low rate of complications.
