Objectives. - Suburethral sling is the gold standard treatment for stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Short-term cure rates are high, but only few studies are available for longer assessment after transobturator tape procedure. The objectives of this study were to assess mid-term functional outcome for Monarc (R) transobturator tape after initial success, and to identify risk factors for recurrence. Material and methods. - We conducted a single centre retrospective study (2004-2013) on consecutive women with SUI who underwent Monarc (R) transobturator tape procedure and were initially cured at the postoperative medical consultation. Pre- and postoperative data (age, weight, height, body mass index, hormonal status, surgical history, associated organ prolapse [Baden and Walker], associated urinary symptoms, postoperative complications [Clavien-Dindo]) were extracted from the electronic medical record. Subjective cure was defined by a score of zero from the ICIQ-SF questionnaire, no second intervention for recurrent SUI and no need for pads at latest news. Statistical analysis was performed using SAS (R) v9.3 (P < 0.05). Results. - One hundred and thirty-three consecutive women underwent TOT Monarc (R) procedure, and 125 women were cured in the short-term. Among these women, 103 (82%) were available for mid-term evaluation. Sixty-four women (62%) had pure stress urinary incontinence. The mean follow-up period was 51 months [2-119]. At last follow-up, cure rate was 61%. Seventy-eight percent of women with recurrent urinary incontinence had SUI. Other women had mixed urinary incontinence (3/40), or de novo urgency (6/40). In univariate analysis, we could not identify pejorative prognostic factors for mid-term failure. Conclusion. - In our experience, mid-term functional outcome after Monarc (R) transobturator tape procedure seems to deteriorate. After 4 years of follow-up, 61% of the women who were initially cured were still free from any leakage. (C) 2016 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.
