A transobturator (TOT) sling is an effective solution for stress urinary incontinence.
 
Approximately 85% of all women in or beyond childbearing years experience some degree of stress urinary incontinence. This leakage, which often occurs with coughing, laughing, sneezing, running, or jumping is not only embarrassing but also tends to prohibit many activities of today's active woman.
 
The new TOT sling is inserted vaginally in a ten minute outpatient surgery. Patients generally leave the outpatient facility in a few hours.
 
Several improvements in the procedure and the technology ensure that the TOT sling is the method of choice.
 
The new TOT sling is attached underneath the pubic bone. After approximately 90 days of healing and the formation of supportive scar tissue, the central portion of the sling will have dissolved into the body.
