The two most common surgeries are the retropubic
sling, which involves placing a mesh sling under the urethra and behind the pubic bone, and the transobturator sling, which positions the sling at a less acute angle by placing the mesh through the thigh area.
The vaginal slings market, based on method, has been segmented into the retropubic
method, transobturator method, and single-incision mini method.
TUESDAY, July 23, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- For women with recurrent stress urinary incontinence (SUI), the cumulative incidence of reoperation is significantly lower with treatment with a retropubic
sling versus a transobturator sling, according to a study published online July 9 in Obstetrics & Gynecology.
Monty pioneered use of the original TVT (tension-free vaginal tape) procedure (retropubic
) in South Africa.
The finding comes from a secondary analysis of two randomized, controlled trials comparing Burch colposuspension, autologous fascial slings, retropubic
midurethral polypropylene slings, and transobturator midurethral polypropylene slings.
The newly practiced incontinence surgeries have been compared with this procedure because the long-term results of retropubic
colposuspension surgeries are much better known.
These procedures include retropubic
colposuspensions (Burch colposuspension and the Marshall-Marchetti-Krantz procedure), the traditional bladder-neck sling, and the tension-free vaginal tape procedure. Retropubic
colposuspension could be performed by abdominal, laparoscopic, or robotic routes.
Marshall-Marchetti-Krantz (MMK) and Burch colposuspension are two of the most studied retropubic
radical prostatectomy was performed with routine perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis with 400 mg of intravenous ciprofloxacin.
The most common treatment for stress urinary incontinence is a synthetic midurethral mesh sling, but alternatively a patient and surgeon may choose retropubic
suspension or a fascial sling.
