Abstract

PURPOSE: We evaluated the early outcomes of Gortex patch sling operation in the management of women with intrinsic sphincter deficiency(ISD).
MATERIALS AND METHODS
20 women underwent Gortex patch sling operation to treat genuine stress urinary incontinence and all patients had ISD. Patients were interviewed by telephone for incontinence, self-catheterization, and voiding symptoms at a mean of 16.6 months(range 6-35) after surgery.
RESULTS
The mean age of the patients was 54.2 years and mean parity was 2. Mean operation time was 55 minutes(range 45-90) and mean duration of postoperative catheterization was 7.0 days(range 5-12). Success rate(complete dry) was 90% and de novo urge incontinence occurred in 3(15%).
CONCLUSIONS
Gortex patch sling operation is a safe, simple and effective procedure for the treatment of stress incontinence due to ISD. However, further follow-up of longterm results is needed.
