To evaluate one-year outcomes of tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) procedure in women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI). METHODS: From 2002 to 2005, all patients with stress urinary incontinence undergoing the TVT procedure were enrolled in this retrospective study. All cases were diagnosed as SUI by the evidences in history, physical examination, and urodynamic study. Outcomes and post-operative complications were investigated from review of medical records and interview during post-operative follow-up. RESULTS: Totally 164 cases were enrolled in this study. The success rates (cure or improved) of two-month and one-year after the TVT procedure were 94.5% and 87.9%, and the failure rates were 5.5% and 3.0%, respectively. The follow-up loss rate in one-year was 9.1%. There was no serious complication related to the procedure in one-year follow-up. CONCLUSION: This preliminary report indicates that the TVT procedure is a safe treatment modality for female SUI. Further investigation with long term follow-up is required to estimate cumulative success rate and late complications.
