STUDY OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether patient quality of life and sexual function are improved after the tension-free vaginal tape SECUR (TVT-S) procedure (H-type). DESIGN: Prospective study (Canadian Task Force classification II-3). SETTING: Single-center hospital. PATIENTS: Thirty-three women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) (high urethral mobility) and no concomitant pelvic floor prolapse underwent TVT-S between October 2009 and October 2011. INTERVENTION: TVT-S procedure. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Before and after surgery(6 and 12 months), all patients completed the Chinese version of the Incontinence Quality of Life Questionnaire (I-QOL). In addition, 28 sexually active patients who underwent the TVT-S procedure completed the short-form Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Function Questionnaire (PISQ-12) before and after surgery (6 and 12 months). We used a paired t test to compare I-QOL scores before and after surgery. The Wilcoxon signed-rank test was used to compare the preoperative and postoperative PISQ scores. The objective cure rate was 78% (26 of 33 patients) at 12 months after surgery. The objective improvement rate was 12.1% (4 of 33 patients). The subjective satisfaction rate was 90%. Three operations (9.1%) were considered failures. Two patients underwent a TVT procedure after TVT-S because of recurrence. No patients reported severe pain; the mean (SD) visual analog scale pain score was 1.8 (1.2) after surgery. Only 1 patient (3%) was found to have sling erosion at 12 months postoperatively. The I-QOL score was 28.3 (14.2) before surgery and increased to 69.5 (18.9) at 12 months after the TVT-S procedure. The I-QOL score improved significantly after surgery (p <.001). The total PISQ-12 score at 6 months after surgery in all sexually active patients was 33.82 (0.87), compared with 31.57 (1.20) before surgery (p <.05). Physical domain scores on the PISQ-12 demonstrated significant improvement, increasing from 12.61 (0.75) to 14.36 (0.49) (p <.05). No significant difference was found between I-QOL and PISQ-12 scores at 6 and 12 months after surgery. There was no significant difference in total PISQ-12 scores in premenopausal patients before and after surgery (p >.05). CONCLUSIONS: Although the objective cure rate was not high, the TVT-S procedure is a minimally invasive, safe, and effective surgical procedure for treatment of SUI (high urethral mobility) and can improve the quality of life and sexual function in women with SUI.
