Laparoscopic TVT Removal: Groin and Thigh Pain (Obturator Neuralgia)
TVT placement can sometimes result in severe groin and thigh pain. The pain is so severe it sometimes will make itdifficult to walk. In this situation Dr. Miklos and Dr. Moore believe it is best to remove the whole TVT or as much as possibleas soon as possible. Groin and thigh pain can be a result of the synthetic TVT sling embedded into the obturator muscles or Impinging on the obturator nerve.
