OBJECTIVE: Single-incision mini-slings (SIMS) are new minimally invasive devices used for female stress urinary incontinence (SUI). To date, several SIMS are available, but few and uncontrolled comparative data have assessed their safety and feasibility. The aim of the present clinical study was to compare three different SIMS in an ambulatory setting. STUDY DESIGN: One hundred and twenty patients with SUI were randomized to receive three SIMS: Ajust, MiniArc, and TVT Secur System. Surgical data were compared. RESULTS: Significantly (P<0.05) lower surgical difficulty and higher patient satisfaction were detected in the MiniArc group when compared to the Ajust and TVT Secur System groups. A significantly (P<0.05) higher feasibility under local anesthesia and in ambulatory setting was also detected for the MiniArc group. The overall complication rate was significantly (P<0.05) lower in the MiniArc group than in the TVT Secur System group. CONCLUSIONS: MiniArc is simpler to insert under local anesthesia and in an ambulatory setting. It is safer than the TVT Secur System, and is related to higher patient satisfaction.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Single-incision mini-slings (SIMS) are new minimally invasive devices used for female stress urinary incontinence (SUI). To date, several SIMS are available, but few and uncontrolled comparative data have assessed their safety and feasibility. The aim of the present clinical study was to compare three different SIMS in an ambulatory setting. STUDY DESIGN: One hundred and twenty patients with SUI were randomized to receive three SIMS: Ajust, MiniArc, and TVT Secur System. Surgical data were compared. RESULTS: Significantly (P<0.05) lower surgical difficulty and higher patient satisfaction were detected in the MiniArc group when compared to the Ajust and TVT Secur System groups. A significantly (P<0.05) higher feasibility under local anesthesia and in ambulatory setting was also detected for the MiniArc group. The overall complication rate was significantly (P<0.05) lower in the MiniArc group than in the TVT Secur System group. CONCLUSIONS: MiniArc is simpler to insert under local anesthesia and in an ambulatory setting. It is safer than the TVT Secur System, and is related to higher patient satisfaction.
