Abstract
Transobturator tape (TOT) as one of midurethral slings is increasingly popular for the surgical treatment of stress urinary incontinence because of low complication rate and short operating time. Vaginal erosion after TOT is generally observed in 0.7%-1.3% of all cases. For preventing complications like vaginal erosion or infection after TOT, subtotal or total excision of mesh materials and use of broad-spectrum antibiotics are recommended. We report our experience with a case of treatment using skin flap and foreign body removal of recurrent mesh erosion in TOT.
Key Words: Transobturator tape, Mesh erosion, Stress urinary incontinence
