Minimally invasive surgical procedure for stress urinary incontinence:
Minimally invasive surgical procedures are often used to treat the most common type of incontinence, stress urinary incontinence.
Stress incontinence is an involuntary loss of urine that occurs during physical activity, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercise. Any movement that puts pressure on the bladder (such as a sneeze) causes the urethra to lose its seal and allows urine to escape.
We can treat this leakage of urine with a minimally invasive surgical procedure called Tension Free Vaginal Tape Obturator System (TVTO), which is appropriate for some women with stress urinary incontinence. During this procedure, a sling is created using a synthetic mesh ribbon-like strip that is surgically inserted through the vagina and placed under the urethra to keep it in its normal position. This allows urethra to remain closed, preventing the involuntary release of urine.
Length of surgery: half an hour.
Recovery: the procedure can be performed under local or loco regional anesthesia. The recovery period following the procedure is very short, and patients experience minimal pain and discomfort after surgery.
