TVT Sling Complications: Abdominal, Pelvic, and Vaginal Pain
If a patient is suffering from lower abdominal pain, pelvic pain and vaginal pain after the insertion of TVT Sling, then the whole sling (95%-100% of mesh) should be removed. This will take tension off of the vagina and at its exit points (ie. The lower abdominal wall) Removing the sling will often completely remove the lower abdominal and pelvic painas well as painful sex. Dr Miklos & Moore remove the sling using both a vaginal (20% of sling removed) and laparoscopic (80% of sling removed) approach. The laparoscopic approach ( mini incisions) is rarely performed by most surgeons, but Drs Miklos and Moore have the most experience in the world removing TVT type slings this way.
