Transobturator tape (TOT) operation for urinary stress incontinence is associated with less complication rate than Tension free vaginal tape (TVT). The two procedures yield similar rates of success. The TOT is lead through the obturator foramen, reducing the risk of bladder injury as well as damage of structures located in the Retzii cave, e.g. nerves and blood vessels. However the complications of TOT procedure may have several complications associated with obturator foramen. They are the injury of obturator nerve and vessels, abscess formation on th obturator foramen, vulvar hematoma, etc. There is no report the uterine artery injury after TOT procedure so far. Recently we experienced a case of successful control of bleeding of the uterine artery after TOT operation via uterine artery embolization. Therefore we report our case with brief review of the literatures.
Key Words: TOT, Uterine artery, Uterine artery embolization
