Single Incision Sling (Mini Sling) Complications: Vaginal Pain / Painful Sex
Mini Slings can also create a problem with vaginal pain or pain with intercourse (ie. sex). These complications occurs less than 1% of the time after surgery. Drs. Miklos and Moore recommend immediate removal of as much of the sling as possible if pain is due to tension. Often with single incision slings (TVT Secur, Precise Mini Arc, Altis Sling) the whole sling can be removed. Please see video for complete 100% removal of Mini Arc Sling.
