  • A transvaginal sling procedure with bone anchor fixation UROLOGIC CLINICS OF NORTH AMERICA Payne, C. K. 1999; 26 (2): 423-?


    Urethral sling procedures have become increasingly popular in the treatment of female stress incontinence. Until recently, the use of this procedure in the urologic community has been limited by technical difficulties and complications (e.g., urinary retention, urethral injury, urge frequency). Many modifications of the original sling procedure recently have been described to decrease surgical morbidity. This article describes a minimally invasive sling procedure performed completely through the vagina, with the aid of bone anchor fixation. The potential advantages of this operation include a rapid return to full activity and normal voiding. It should be noted that neither the long-term safety nor the efficacy has been established.
