Trans Vaginal Tape :
|Transvaginal Tape is a minimally invasive procedure for women who suffer from stress urinary incontinence (involuntary leakage of urine when coughing, sneezing, laughing, jumping, walking, sitting, or standing). In Transvaginal Tape, the urinary bladder and urethra are repaired, strengthened and returned to it's original position in the pelvis.|
Am I a candidate for TVT ?
The TVT procedure is appropriate for most all patients including overweight patients, elderly patients and even those who have gone through previous operations for stress urinary incontinence. As with any surgery of this kind, this procedure should not be performed on pregnant women. Also, because the mesh-like tape will not stretch significantly, it should not be considered by women who plan a future pregnancy. Only a complete physical examination and consult with your physician can determine if it is right for you.
What does Recovery Involve ?
After the surgery you may be able to go home as early a few hours after the procedure or you will stay in the hospital for one night. Many patients return to normal daily living activities within 2-5 days. Most women recover completely within a two to three week period. During this time there should be very little interference with daily activities, although you will have to avoid heavy lifting, strenuous exercise and sexual intercourse for four to six weeks.
What are the Risks ?
All surgical procedures present some risks. Although rare, complications associated with the procedure include injury to blood vessels of the pelvic sidewall and abdominal wall, nerve damage, difficulty urinating and bladder and bowel injury.
