Abstract

A retrospective study was conducted on the records of 44 women who had received tension-free vaginal tape as a primary or secondary procedure for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence. Intra-operative complications were uncommon, operative time and hospital stays were short and late postoperative complications were few. 36(81.8%) women became dry, six cases (13.6%) are satisfied and two patients (4.5%) are still complaining of stress incontinence. The tension free vaginal tape procedure appeared to be an effective, minimally invasive method for treating female stress urinary incontinence
