AIM: Aim of the present study was to compare the efficacy of tension-free vaginal tape obturator and single-incision tension-free transvaginal tape Secur, hammock approach, in the treatment of stress urinary incontinence.
METHODS: Clinical data of patients who received anti-incontinence surgery between June 2008 and July 2012 were retrospectively analyzed. Efficacy and early failure rate of the tension-free vaginal tape obturator and tension-free vaginal tape-Secur hammock approach were assessed by cough test and criteria of International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire-Short Form. Intraoperative and postoperative complications were also computed.
RESULTS: There were 28 patients in the tension-free vaginal tape obturator group while 32 patients in the tension-free vaginal tape-Secur group. The mean operation time, intraoperative blood loss and inpatient days after surgery between the two groups showed no significant difference. The catheter retention time of the tension-free vaginal tape obturator group was longer than in the tension-free vaginal tape-Secur group. The cure rate of the tension-free vaginal tape obturator and tension-free vaginal tape-Secur groups were respectively 84% and 80%, and the recurrence rates were 14.3% and 16.7%, without significant difference. The scores of International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire-Short Form in two groups both decreased after surgery, but there was no difference between the two groups. There were no serious complications in the two groups.
CONCLUSION: Our study demonstrated that both tension-free vaginal tape obturator and tension-free vaginal tape-Secur can achieve a cure rate over 80% while with little complications, showing both methods are reliable to treat stress urinary incontinence.
