Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

The objectives of this review are to assess the effects of minimally invasive sling procedures for treatment of urodynamic stress urinary incontinence (urodynamic diagnosis), or for symptoms of stress or mixed incontinence (clinical diagnosis) in women.

The following comparisons will be made for self fixing mid-urethral sling procedures:
1. Minimally invasive mid-urethral sling operation versus traditional sub-urethral slings for the management of urodynamic stress incontinence (urodynamic diagnosis), and for symptoms of stress or mixed incontinence (clinical diagnosis).
2. Minimally invasive mid-urethral sling operation versus colposuspension (abdominal surgery) for the management of urodynamic stress incontinence (urodynamic diagnosis), or for symptoms of stress or mixed incontinence (clinical diagnosis).
3. Minimally invasive mid-urethral sling operation versus laparoscopic procedures for the management of urodynamic stress incontinence (urodynamic diagnosis), or for symptoms of stress or mixed incontinence (clinical diagnosis).
4. One type of minimally invasive mid-urethral sling operations versus another type of self fixing mid-urethral sling for the management of urodynamic stress incontinence (urodynamic diagnosis), or for symptoms of stress or mixed incontinence (clinical diagnosis).
5. Retropubic minimally invasive mid-urethral sling operations versus trans-obturator self fixing mid-urethral sling for the management of urodynamic stress incontinence (urodynamic diagnosis), or for symptoms of stress or mixed incontinence (clinical diagnosis).
6. Minimally invasive mid-urethral sling operation versus conservative treatment of urodynamic stress incontinence (urodynamic diagnosis), or for symptoms of stress or mixed incontinence (clinical diagnosis).
