Abstract

The most commonly performed surgeries for stress urinary incontinence are full-length mesh midurethral slings. This chapter will review the indications, contraindications, and complications related to the use of these mesh midurethral slings. Unlike transvaginal mesh for prolapse, complications related to mesh midurethral slings are low and less than the complication rates with previous traditional continence surgeries. Given their safety profile and efficacy, full-length mesh midurethral slings have been rapidly adopted and remain the current standard of care for stress urinary incontinence surgical treatment.
