TOT Sling Complications: Mesh Erosion in Urethra / Bladder

A rare complication of TOT slings can result in the mesh penetrating the inside of the urethra or the bladder.  The mesh can gain entry into the urethra or bladder through a slow process of erosion or can be placed there at the time of the sling surgery by the surgeon (i.e. an accident). 

Patients may experience pain with urination, vaginal pain, bladder pain, urethra pain, blood in the urine, pain with intercourse, recurrent bladder infections, frequency, urgency or be completely asymptomatic.
