TOT Sling Complications

The TOT sling was developed to make the placement of the suburethral mesh tape sling less complicated and to also minimize some of the risks known to occur with the passage of the abdominal needles for placement of the TVT type sling (ie bladder, bowel, major vascular injury). Instead of passing needles blindly through the abdominal wall, the needles are passed through the groins, which is a potentially much safer needle pass.

Many of the complications listed with the TVT sling can also be encountered with the TOT sling,however secondary to the needles being passed through the groin instead of the abdominal wall, it typically does not result in abdominal pain issues. Secondary to the needles being passed through the groin and the mesh tape being pulled through the groin muscles, it can result occasionally in pain in the groin region.
