The purpose of this study is to evaluate the ability of preoperative urodynamic urethral function parameters to predict the success rate of transobturator slings (TOS). Seventy women urodynamically diagnosed with stress incontinence with urethral hypermobility underwent a Monarc™ TOS (American Medical Systems, Minnetonka, USA). Postoperative continence status was correlated with preoperative urodynamic urethral function parameters. Mathematical modeling was used to determine whether urodynamic… CONTINUE READING
