TOT: BLADDER SLING

A Trans-Obturator Tape sling procedure corrects stress incontinence by supporting the urethra to keep it in its correct position. It is a relatively simple procedure that can be done with minimal hospitalization and recovery time. In addition, TOT has been shown to be effective in relieving stress incontinence in women who are obese and have increased pressure on the bladder and urethra.Trans-obturator sling procedures have a success rate of about 90%. 

Stress incontinence can occur when weak pelvic floor muscles, or pressure from other organs shift or weaken the bladder neck. When the bladder neck is out of place, the urethral sphincter may not be able to keep the bladder neck closed under physical stress. The surgically implanted sling corrects stress incontinence by supporting and repositioning the bladder neck and urethra in their correct position, which can help the urethral sphincter function properly. The end result is that after a sling procedure, most women can regain control of their bladder.
