Abstract

Although rare, serious vascular injuries after tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) insertion have been well known. We present a case of external iliac artery injury after TVT insertion, managed successfully by surgical intervention. This article also reviews the literature regarding major vascular injuries and their management. We conclude that clinicians should be able to suspect rare but serious vascular injuries, and patients have to be fully counselled regarding their potential consequences.
