Background: Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common problem in women, which accounts about 50% of all incontinent women and affects the quality of life. The mid-urethral sling is the mainstay of SUI treatment over the last years. Tension-free vaginal tape (TVT), has been used as minimally invasive procedure for SUI.Objective: To compare outcomes of sub-urethral minisling and transobturator tape (TOT) for treatment of female SUI, one year follow up regarding operative time, length of hospital stays, postoperative pain perception, general postoperative complications, surgical site infections and early recurrence.Patients and Methods: This comparative study has been conducted in Al-Hussein and Sayed Galal Hospitals; Al-Azhar University; Cairo; Egypt and it included 96 cases, 8 patients missed communication data, 9 refused to participate, 34 in minisling group and 45 in transobturator tape (TOT) group. This a retrospective study for follow up of operated cases during the period from July 2015 to June 2018 at the Urology Department, Al-Hussein, Sayed Galal University Hospitals; Cairo; Egypt.Results: In our study, the minisling operation was associated with nearly the same hospital stay of transobturator tape (TOT). We had early recurrence rate among minisling operation. Finally, the transobturator tape (TOT) operation was associated with less recurrence rate and recurrence time postoperatively compared to the minisling.Conclusion: Minisling when compared to transobturator tape (TOT) for treating SUI; transobturator tape (TOT) yielded better outcomes regarding the postoperative 1 year follow up compared to the minisling.
