In this case report, we discuss two cases of the successful use of the tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) to treat women with detrusor overactivity (DO) but no evidence of urodynamic stress incontinence (USI). The use of the TVT for the treatment of DO has been evaluated in a small number of studies of women with mixed incontinence. There is no data in the literature concerning its use in women with DO only. Here, we briefly review the literature including the postulated mechanism by which stress leakage due to DO is cured by the TVT.
