Abstract :

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women is defined as the involuntary loss of urine during physical exertion, coughing, sneezing or sudden change in position. In the literature, chronic postoperative pain is more frequent in the transobturator tape (TOT) than tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) group. The TOT procedure was associated with a lower rate of post-operative complication. Compared the effectiveness of TOT and TVT for the treatment of SUI, de novo frequency and urgency symptoms were equivalent. However, postoperatively, urinary infection and chronic pain were significantly more frequent with TOT procedure.
