The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the TVT procedure as a second-line anti-incontinence operation for TVT-obturator failure patients.Methods:
Five patients with a urodynamic-diagnosed TVT-obturator procedure therapeutic failure had a TVT operation. Follow-up periods lasted 3 to 11 months.Results:
The 5 TVT patients were completely dry, intraoperative diagnostic cystoscopies were unremarkable, and no perioperative complications were recorded.Conclusions:
The TVT procedure is a safe, easy-to-perform, and effective second-line operation for the cure of post-TVT-obturator persistent urinary stress incontinence. However, long-term data collection is required before drawing solid conclusions regarding this surgical approach for women diagnosed with TVT-obturator failure.
