Abstract

Purpose of review: Patient-reported outcomes and satisfaction are recognized as being equally important as traditional objective measures of success following midurethral sling (MUS) procedures. The objective of this article is to review the success after MUSs in the context of patient satisfaction. Recent findings: Patient satisfaction for both transobturator and retropubic MUSs at 2 years is high with rates up to 88%. Factors that positively influence satisfaction include improvement in quality of life and reduction in severity of symptoms. Satisfaction has been found to be negatively impacted by persistent stress incontinence, preoperative urinary urgency, mixed urinary incontinence, detrusor overactivity, and selected comorbidities such as diabetes. Factors, such as postoperative incomplete bladder emptying, irritative voiding, and complications after MUS surgery, can also influence satisfaction adversely. Summary: Combining patient-reported outcome measures with customary objective measures offer a more comprehensive assessment of success. Even though the data are limited, the short-term and intermediateterm rates of satisfaction are promising for both transobturator and retropubic MUSs. Future studies should focus on further elucidating long-term predictors of satisfaction after MUS placement.
