A 56-year-old non-obese woman with a previous history of pelvic surgery underwent an uneventful TVT procedure for the treatment of genuine stress incontinence. Postoperatively she began to report an acute low abdominal pain and a secondary laparoscopy was performed.

Abstract

A 56-year-old non-obese woman with a previous history of pelvic surgery underwent an uneventful TVT procedure for the treatment of genuine stress incontinence. Postoperatively she began to report an acute low abdominal pain and a secondary laparoscopy was performed. The view of the right iliac region showed the tape passing through a loop of the small intestine. The tape was cut in its intraperitoneal portion and the ileum freed and repaired. After the operation the patient recovered well and was discharged on the fifth day after laparoscopy. Despite the section of the tape, 1 year later the patient is objectively cured by the procedure.
