Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) has always been a major health issue for women. With the progression of technology and surgical techniques, mid urethral slings (MUS) used in both transvaginal and transobturator routes have become the gold standard in the treatment of SUI. There is ample short to mid-term data confirming the efficacy and safety in using MUS in treating SUI in women. However, long-term data supporting the use of MUS in women to treat SUI is scarce. There has been much controversy surrounding the US Food and Drug Administrations' (FDA) public notification of potential complications surrounding the use of transvaginal mesh, which has been magnified and generalised by the media; but despite this there has still been substantial growth and uptake of MUS for treating SUI...

BACKGROUND: Urinary incontinence is a very common and debilitating problem affecting about 50% of women at some point in their lives. Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a predominant cause in 30% to 80% of these women imposing significant health and economic burden on society and the women affected. Mid-urethral sling (MUS) operations are a recognised minimally invasive surgical treatment for SUI. MUS involves the passage of a small strip of tape through either the retropubic or obturator space, with entry or exit points at the lower abdomen or groin, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Urinary incontinence has been shown to affect up to 50% of women. Studies in the USA have shown that up to 80% of these women have an element of stress urinary incontinence. This imposes significant health and economic burden on society and the women affected. Colposuspension and now mid-urethral slings have been shown to be effective in treating patients with stress incontinence. However, associated adverse events include bladder and bowel injury, groin pain and haematoma formation...

INTRODUCTION: To evaluate the impact of design features of the synthetic mid-urethral slings on tissue integrity and inflammatory responses. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In total 30 female Sprague-Dawley rats were implanted with type I monofilamentous, macroporous polypropylene meshes: Gynecare TVT-Obturator tape(®) (Ethicon Inc., Johnson & Johnson, Somerville, NJ, USA) and I-STOP(®) (CL Medical Inc., Lyon, France). All animal groups were sacrificed at set time intervals - 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 12 months - and the abdominal wall was harvested with mesh strips for histological evaluation...

OBJECTIVE: To determine outcomes after removal of two synthetic mid-urethral slings (MUS) at a tertiary care center. METHODS: Following IRB approval, a retrospective chart review of non-neurogenic, symptomatic women requiring re-operation after ≥2 MUS was performed. Data reviewed by a third party included: demographics, prior anti-incontinence surgery, complications, pelvic/urinary symptoms, subsequent investigations, surgical repair and outcomes (including UDI-6/IIQ-7 questionnaires) at a minimum 6 months follow-up...

OBJECTIVE: To compare prevalence and severity of any surgical pain between transobturator and retropubic slings; secondary aims were to compare pain at anatomic locations, pain medication use, and pain resolution between transobturator and retropubic slings and to compare pain between types of transobturator slings. METHODS: This is a secondary analysis of the Trial of Mid-Urethral Slings, which compared retropubic and transobturator sling outcomes and included 597 participants from 2006 to 2008...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Increased incidences of complications related to the use of mid-urethral slings (MUS) for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence resulted in both the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada issuing advisories in 2008 and 2010 respectively. The purpose of this study was to assess the effect these advisories had on the number of surgeons performing MUS surgery and post-surgical complications in Calgary, Canada. METHODS: In this study, we conducted a retrospective analysis of administrative data between 2006 and 2011...

INTRODUCTION: To evaluate the clinical effectiveness and quality of life (QOL) of outpatient mid-urethral tissue fixation system sling (TFS) procedures for urodynamic stress urinary incontinence (SUI) at 3-year follow-up. METHODS: We analyzed 50 mid-urethral TFS sling operations between 2007 and 2012 at Yokohama Motomachi Women's Clinic LUNA. The primary outcome was success defined as a negative 24-h pad test, negative cough and Valsalva stress test, and no re-treatment for SUI...

OBJECTIVE: We sought to examine the risk of recurrent stress urinary incontinence (SUI) after suburethral sling mesh removal or excision. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of patients who were continent before removal or excision of synthetic midurethral slings; this cohort of 278 subjects was much larger than seen in previous such studies. Patients with preoperative incontinence, additional vaginal mesh placements, prior mesh revision/excision, existing SUI, and prior pelvic radiation or fistula were excluded...

AIMS: To assess the efficacy and safety of peri-urethral bulking injections (PBI) with an innovative bulking material (PDMS-U) in women with stress-urinary incontinence (SUI) who are not optimal candidates for mid-urethral sling surgery. METHODS: A prospective study was performed in women with SUI who, for several reasons, have a relative contraindication for a mid-urethral sling procedure. These reasons include: (i) recurrent SUI after a prior SUI surgical procedure; (ii) a history of oncologic gynaecological surgery; (iii) a history of neurologic disease resulting in voiding problems; (iv) a maximal flow rate of less than 15 mL per second or; (v) women with a contraindication for surgery with general or regional anaesthesia...

The risk of arterial vascular injury within the retropubic space is a potentially life-threatening complication associated with mid-urethral sling placement for the treatment of female stress urinary incontinence. To determine the relationship between the major blood vessels and a single incision sling, these slings were placed in 12 fresh female cadavers. Following the insertion of each sling, the retropubic space was dissected and sling placement was observed relative to the obturator neurovascular bundle bilaterally...

OBJECTIVE: Mid-urethral slings (MUS) become a standard, minimally invasive surgery to treat urinary stress incontinence. Our aim is to investigate the contribution of preoperative urodynamics to mid-urethral slings success and determine predictors for choosing mid-urethral sling route.

AIMS: The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of resident teaching on outcomes of mid-urethral sling surgery. METHODS: A retrospective review of female patients who underwent an outpatient transobturator (TOT) synthetic mid-urethral sling procedure with and without concomitant prolapse repair by two surgeons (JA, KE) in a tertiary female pelvic medicine practice was performed. Total procedure time (TPT = time from incision to closure including sling placement and any prolapse procedure), estimated blood loss (EBL), and postoperative complications including urinary retention, mesh exposure, reoperation, vaginal bleeding, and leg pain were compared between cases with and without the presence of a resident...

Mid urethral sling is the standard in SUI treatment. Nevertheless, the risk of reoperation reaches 9%. There is no consensus as to the best treatment option for complications. A question is raised: what is the optimal way to achieve the best result in patients after primary failure? The aim of the study was to evaluate the outcomes of repeat MUS surgery in patients after excision of the sling with recurrent SUI. We compared its effectiveness with uncomplicated cases treated with TVT. 27 patients who underwent the repeated MUS and 50 consecutive patients after primary TVT were enrolled in the study...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the long-term outcomes of unilateral mid-urethral sling transection to treat voiding dysfunction after synthetic mid-urethral sling placement for stress urinary incontinence. STUDY DESIGN: Twenty-three patients who underwent an unilateral sling transection were analyzed retrospectively. Patient records were analyzed for subjective outcome, and pre- and postoperative flow patterns were used as objective outcome parameters. RESULTS: At the first postoperative follow-up, 77...

OBJECTIVE: To determine if postoperative urinary retention and urinary tract infections (UTIs) were predictors of future mesh complications requiring surgical intervention after midurethral sling (MUS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Administrative data in Ontario, Canada, between 2002 and 2013 were used to identify all women who underwent a mesh-based MUS. The primary outcome was revision of the transvaginal mesh sling (including mesh removal/erosion/fistula, or urethrolysis)...
