This non-randomised study prospectively compared clinical efficacy and patient satisfaction of single-incision mid-urethral tape (Ophira™) against transobturator tape (Obtryx™). Objective cure rates were defined at 12 months follow-up as negative cough stress test and subjective cure was assessed by patient perception of improved symptoms, using the International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire Short Form (ICIQ-SF) questionnaire. Thirty patients received the Ophira, 29 (93.3%) reported significantly improved symptoms and 27 (90%) had a negative cough stress test. Thirty-one patients received the Obtryx, 29 (93.5%) reported significantly improved symptoms and 29 (93.5%) had a negative cough stress test. Twelve month follow up showed the procedures were comparable in objective and subjective cure rates.

 

Key words: Transobturator tape (TOT) procedure, mini-sling, stress urinary incontinence (SUI).
