Objectives: We aimed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a transobturator sling (TOT) procedure by using an adjustable TOT device in the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI).

Materials and Methods: The data of 89 patients who had the diagnosis of SUI and underwent TOT operation by using an adjustable MUS device of SAFYRE t plus (Promedon®) between June 2005 - November 2012, were retrospectively evaluated. The pateints were evaluted by the parametres of physical examination, stress test, ultrasonography, uroflowmetry, residual urine measurement, cystometry, subjective incontinence scoring (VASi), patients' satisfaction scoring (VASs), and ICQ-SF questionare. The preoperative, perioperative, and postoperative collected data were statistically analysed to determine the efficacy and safety of TOT application by using SAFYRE t plus.

Results: The mean age, account of parity, and body mass index was 55.3±10.1, 2.34 ± 1.43, and 24.97 ± 3.7, respectively. While the pre- and postoperative results of stress test, VASi, and ICIQ-SF scores were significantly different (P=0.00 in all), the pre- and postoperative results of Qmax and PVR account were similar (P= 0.84, P= 0.79, respectively). The severity of subjective incontinence (VASi score) significantly improved after the operation. The mean VASs score at postoperative 12th month was 7.75±1.11. The subjective and objective cure rates were %89.9 (80/89) and %78.6 (70/89), respectively.

Conclusion: The TOT operation by using SAFYRE t plus, which was an adjustable sling device, seemed to be an efficient, reasonably safe, minimally invasive treatment alternative for the surgical management SUI in women.
