Abstract

Recently, the midline intravaginal slingplasty (anterior IVS) directed at reinforcing the pubourethral ligament was introduced for treatment of urinary stress incontinence. An independent telephone interview to evaluate urinary symptoms and surgery-related changes in quality of life was performed between 12 and 32 months after surgery. Of 52 women initially enrolled, 3 were lost during follow-up. None of the patients experienced infection, rejection or erosion of the tape. The procedure failed in 7 patients whereas in 42 patients cure of stress incontinence was achieved. This was not only verified by clinical examination at initial follow-up but also confirmed by the patients at the time of the interview. Although about two-thirds of the patients reported urge incontinence and/or voiding difficulties during their interview, the validation of the surgery was rather high and only in a minority did urinary complaints translate into reduced quality of life.
