Time: 18:30 – 19:30 CETExpect lively and informative debates on the use of synthetic slings for the treatment of female stress urinary incontinence during this UROwebinar.
The fear of severe adverse events related to the fibrosis around the synthetic material has decreased or even banned their use in several countries.
Single-incision mini-slings show comparable efficacy to retropubic and transobturator mid-urethral slings. However, the amount of synthetic material in single-incision mini-slings is much less.
This UROwebinar aims to present the most recent comparative trials between the two classes of slings and the long-term efficacy data of single incision mini-slings. The consequences for the urological practice will be analysed.
