Mini Bladder Sling Complications

The single incision sling aka mini-sling is a mesh surgery that can result in bladder sling complications.  Internationally renowned experts Drs. Miklos and Moore have extensive experience removing the single incision slings in patients suffering from bladder sling complications. 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.  This mesh surgery is the least invasive of all  mid-urethral mesh tape slings but can still result in a bladder sling complication for the patient. 

The most common mesh complications associated with the single incision sling is:  vaginal pain, at rest or pain during intercourse.   Other complications include but are not limited to:  vaginal skin erosion, vaginal pain with or without intercourse, urethral or bladder erosion, urine retention or incomplete bladder emptying.   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. However, Drs. Miklos & Moore are aware that complications can occur just as with any operative procedure.  The key to dealing with a bladder sling complications is identifying the surgical mesh complication and then repair complications. Drs. Miklos & Moore can usually remove the "whole" mini sling.
