Abstract

Condensation: As a result of the first Hungarian clinical experience, transobturator tape is an effective, quick, minimally invasive method requiring short hospital stay, with low morbidity. Objectives: Transobturator Tape implant provides a new surgical technique. Study design: Preoperative workup included history taking, stress-test and Q-tip test, general and gynaecological examination and completion of the QUID (Questionnaire for Urinary Incontinence Diagnosis). Sample size was 250 women suffering from urinary incontinence. Results: 115 patients (46%) had genuine stress incontinence, 55 patients (22%) had urge incontinence and 80 patients (32%) had mixed-type incontinence with dominant stress component. Mean length of follow-up was 16 months. Preoperative severity score of stress incontinence was 11.78 on average, while that of urge component was 6.63. Nine out of the 250 operations were complicated by adverse event. Mean length of hospital stay was 4.76 days. Evaluation of postoperative questionnaires resulted in a mean severity score of 2.22 for the stress component and 2.59 for the urge component. Conclusion: The procedure is an effective, quick, minimally invasive method requiring short hospital stay, with low morbidity.
