Abstract

Stress urinary incontinence is a common health issue affecting the quality of life of more than 50% of women at some point in their lifes, frequently associated with pelvic organ prolapse. It represents the involuntary leakage of urine through urethra with the increase of intraabdominal pressure. In terms of surgical management, midurethral sling procedures, such as the tension-free vaginal tape and transobturator midurethral slings, have started to replace other surgical treatments, being minimally invasive procedures.

In this paper we wanted to evaluate the impact of surgery on the quality of life, patient satisfaction and sexual function, and also postoperative pain management.

Keywords: incontinence, sling procedures, patient satisfaction, sexual function, palliation
