Aim: Percutaneous vaginal tape surgery is a cheap and effective choice among stress urinary incontinence surgeries. It is aimed to evaluate the characteristics and the treatment results of patients who underwent percutaneous vaginal tape surgery in this study. Material and Method: The clinical characteristics of 48 patients who underwent percutaneous vaginal tape surgery were retrospectively investigated. The patients were asked about ability to hold urine and quality of life during clinical check-ups and by telephone. Results: The average age of the 48 patients was 51.17 +/- 9.96 years. The average cystometric capacity was 445 +/- 107.08 ml and average Q max values before and after the operation were 31.10 +/- 11.38 ml/s and 23.20 +/- 14.27 ml/s (p=0.23). The general patient results after an average of over six months were 79.2% cure, 18.75% improvement and 2.05% unsuccessful. Of the 19 patients who remained for monitoring, after an average 58.4 month follow-up 16 (84.2%) patients fully cure, and 3 (15.8%) reported renewal of complaints after initial improvement. Discussion: Currently, application simplicity, short and medium-term successful results, and acceptable low complication rates make percutaneous vaginal tape surgery is a good treatment alternative that can be chosen for stress urinary incontinence cases.
