Urinary Incontinence Solution is Tested

Posted Jul 22 2009 10:13pm

A new solution to women’s stress urinary incontinence TVT-Secur tension-free tape has been tested.

A total of 32 hammock-shaped tape interventions were performed on patients who had stress urinary incontinence. Each patient underwent urogynecological assessment with urodynamic evaluation and performed a quality of life questionnaire.

None of the 32 women had any surgical complication, postoperative pain or blood loss greater than 100 cc following the treatment. A few minor complications were recorded and the sling eroded in 1 case.

Urinary continence was achieved in all patients after surgery and at assessments 12 to 18 months later. All the patients confirmed immediate satisfaction with continence and pain on the questionnaire.

TVT-Secur is a minimally invasive surgical technique for stress urinary incontinence in females.

Although procedure has proven to be effective, there are other ways of managing your incontinence that do not involve any surgery.
