Mini Sling Complications

The single incision mini-sling is the next step in making mid-urethral mesh tape slings even less invasive. External needle passes have been completely eliminated (i.e. no needles through the groin or abdominal wall) and only a single, small incision is needed vaginally to place the mesh tape. It therefore also is a smaller piece of mesh and does not need to be brought through the abdominal wall or groins, essentially eliminating risks of abdominal or groin pain. Drs. Moore and Miklos were some of the first in the US to study and utilize and bring this technology to the US. It is now utilized widely throughout the world and Drs. Moore and Miklos have published many of the first studies and papers on the procedure. The TVT Secur was one of the first on the market, however did not result in cure rates that were equivalent to the TVT and TOT therefore improvements were made with the MiniArc mini-sling by American Medical Systems (AMS) and other  companies have also followed suit with their own versions (ie Boston Scientific Solyx, Bard Ajust)

Although risks are decreased (specifically groin and abdominal complications) other complications as listed with the TVT approach can still occur such as extrusion, vaginal pain, erosion, and voiding dysfunction and are handled similarly.

Below are examples of Mini-slings
