CONTASURE-NEEDLELESS® COMPARED WITH TRANSOBTURATOR-TVT® FOR THE TREATMENT OF STRESS  URINARY INCONTINENCE: LONG-TERM RESULTS

Dr.Lluis Amat,Dr.Eva Martinez; University Hospital Sant Joan de Déu, Barcelona, Spain

 Number of patients: 239

Mean Follow up: minimum of 3  years

Success rate: 84.7% (C-NDL) – 88.9%(TVT-O). The authors reject the hypothesis of inferiority in favour of the alternative hypothesis of noninferiority. C-NDL® is not inferior to TVT-O®

Conclusions: Our experience and the results of the non-inferiority study of the C-NDL® (Contasure –Needleless) compared with the TVT-O® demonstrate that it is a safe, reproducible technique and that it accomplishes the goal of minimally invasive surgery. High objective and subjective cure rates maintained at long-term follow-up indicate that C-NDL® is not inferior to TVT-O®; therefore, single incision tape should be considered in the armamentarium of clinicians who manage women with urodynamic stress incontinence.
