Mini Sling (Minisling) Surgery

Stress urinary incontinence is urinary incontinence when a person coughs, laughs, sneezes or in any situation that increases intra-abdominal pressure. It is the most common type of urinary incontinence and is the most common type especially among women who have given birth.< /p>

Especially pelvic muscles and tissues weakening; It is observed in people whose support structure of the urinary bladder and urinary canal is impaired. We try to repair this deteriorated structure with a patch/mesh support under the bladder and urinary canal (urethra). A wide variety of patches are placed with a variety of needle or hook techniques. We determine the technique of surgery according to the patient. The newest and most up-to-date of these are Mini-hanger methods.

With increasing technology and developments, the first mini-slings were used in the treatment of urinary incontinence at the beginning of the 2000s. Since these mini slings were made from a single small 1.5-2 cm incision, it created a less traumatic process with it. As in classical needle surgeries (TOT/TVT: you can find the details of these surgeries on the website); the use of needles or hooks has decreased markedly, and the use of blinded needles has almost disappeared. Also most importantly; The length of the patch used decreased and shrunk to 6 cm. In other words, the patch applied to the patient, that is, the foreign body, became very small. With all these advantages, it is widely used in the treatment of urinary incontinence with very low complication rates without compromising the success of classical surgeries.
