We read with great interest this study by Zhang et al [1] describing long-term follow-up of women who underwent tension-free vaginal Tape (TVT) for treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The authors present data on 70 women during a follow-up period of 13 years. High objective (81.4%) and subjective (78.6%) cure rates are described while complications occurred in 21.4% of patients.

ConclusionTogether with an appropriate preoperative study, the standardization of this surgical procedure and the application of tips and tricks suggested could make this technique easier to learn for beginners [2] and could help experienced surgeons in reducing, as much as possible, the most frequent complications too [3].

Authors: Onuk Ö Abstract Introduction: Mid-urethral slings, including transobturator tape (TOT), tension-free vaginal tape (TVT), tension-free vaginal tape-obturator (TVT-O), and a single incision sling, are the most popular procedures for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Although the classical TOT procedure is a minimally invasive technique, we believe that this technique can be further improved. Aim: To determine whether there was a difference in success and complication rates between the classical TOT technique and a novel technique called "modified transobturator tape" (mTO...

ConclusionsEven though transobturator tape surgery is a safe and effective procedure for stress urinary incontinence, certain complications can be encountered. Misplacement of the mesh material through the bladder neck is a rare complication and can be managed by successfully removing the mesh material and appropriately placing new transobturator tape material.
