Aim To compare two different operative techniques for stress urinary incontinence in women, transvaginal tape obturator (TVT-O) and retropubictransvaginal tape (TVT). Methods The study included 63 women, of which 32 received TVT-O and 31 were treated with TVT. Follow-up for all patients was done after 1, 3, 6 and 12 months, and yearly thereafter. Each visit included objective evaluations (post-voig residual and stress test). Results The average operating time was 13.19±3.72 minutes in TVT-O group and 26.92±4.77 minutes for TVT. Average time of catheter removal was 1.19±0.4 and 1.26±0.44 for TVT-O and TVT, respectively. Average hospital stay was 2.38±0.75 days in TVT-O group and 2.03±0.91 for TVT. Appearance of complications such as trauma of urethra, bladder perforation, injury of vessels, hematoma and wound infection were not registered. Two (6.3%) of the patients who underwent TVT-O had urinary infection. One (3.1%) of the patients who underwent TVT-O had pelvic pain. De novo urgency appeared in five(15.6%)patients for TVT-O and in four (12.9%) patients for TVT. The success rate in TVT-O group was 90.6% and 90.3% for TVT. Conclusion Both procedures had a very high success rate, with a low rate of perioperative and late postoperative complications.
