Abstract

MiniArc® Sling for the Treatment of Female Stress Urinary Incontinence

Treatment of female stress urinary incontinence (SUI) has been revolutionized over the years and many corrective procedures have been described showing varying degrees of success. A recent development in this direction has been the introduction of MiniArc® sling which avoid blind needle passage in the retropubic space and the groin. Despite of its surgical principle, MiniArc® did not avoid the known complications associated with other mid-urethral slings (MUS). In addition, the data regarding MiniArc® effectiveness was insufficient and conflicting. We recommend the use of MiniArc® sling in the setting of clinical trials till it proves its safety and longterm efficacy relative to MUS.
