Which Sling to Use – What, When, Why and Who? – Summary

Larissa V. Rodriguez, MD, discusses considerations for midurethral sling surgery to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI) that the American Urological Association (AUA) guidelines do not cover, including how to treat non-index patients and choosing optimal slings for individual cases. Specifically, she compares the outcomes of retropubic, transobturator, and autologous fascia pubovaginal slings in various patient demographics. She also summarizes the evolution of sling surgery and how it came into widespread use.
