Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To study the outcome of tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women with cystocele.

METHODS:

Forty-two patients with SUI confirmed by urodynamics underwent the TVT procedure under local anesthesia. A prolapse repair was done simultaneously.

RESULTS:

Mean TVT operation time was 26.29 minutes. Mean blood loss was 29.86 mL. Eighty-eight percent of the

PATIENTS:

were able to micturate spontaneously within 12 hours and residual urine was less than 100 mL. And 12% of the patients had to use indwelling catheter for 3-11 days. Average hospital stay was 2.91 days. Eighty-eight percent of patients were discharged within 2 days. All patients were followed up (an average of 10.26 months). According to subjective and objective assessment of the outcome, 39 patients (93%) were cured, another 3 patients (7%) were significantly improved and none was failed. There were no major complications such as bladder injury occurred.
