Study Comparing Tension-Free Vaginal Tape With the Monarc Procedure for Stress Urinary Incontinence

2014-08-27 03:38:27 | BioPortfolio


Urinary incontinence is a major health issue in women. It is estimated to affect 30 - 40% of older women. Stress urinary incontinence, the most common form of this disease, is treated primarily with surgery. A woman's lifetime risk of surgery for SUI is 4%, with nearly 1/3 of surgery being performed for recurrences. Many different surgical procedures have been described for the treatment of SUI and there is no general agreement as to the most effective. This study compares the safety and efficacy of the tension-free vaginal tape procedure to the Monarc subfascial hammock procedure in the treatment of stress urinary incontinence.
