Abstract

This study aims to assess the suitability of the transobturator tape (TOT) as a day surgery procedure. A retrospective study of all the patients who underwent TOT as a day surgery procedure, at a tertiary referral centre in the south-west of Scotland, over a 3-year period (August 2002-July 2005). The outcome measures were as follows: complication rates (both intra- and immediate postoperative), voiding dysfunction rates, analgesic requirements and unscheduled in-patient ward admission following the procedure. One hundred and sixty-seven case notes were examined; the mean operating time was 14.7 min (range: 12-28 min, median: 14 min). 97.8% of patients had blood loss
