Slings to treat Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) have evolved since the introduction of Retropubic in 1994 and Transobturator in 2001, to Single Incision in 2012. In this webinar, we will compare the safety, effectiveness, and patient satisfaction of full length midurethral slings with single incision slings. We will discuss patient selection and where single incision slings fit in the treatment of SUI.

At the end of this webinar, learners will be able to:

  • Compare the data between single incision slings and full length midurethral slings.
  • Discuss the properties of SUI mesh on the market.
  • Describe the keys to single incision sling implantation.
