Mentor OB Tape

According to a study Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology reports on a study involving f31 patiens undergoing TOT (Obtape (R)) from April 2005 to April 2006, The patients were sent a questionnaire. All patients had significant stress incontinence. One patient had a urinary tract infection and, another, catheterisation for 5 days. A total of 16.6% of patients developed sling erosion. There was a 93% response rate to the postal survey, indicating a 31% complete cure of urinary incontinence; 65% a significant improvement and 3.5% failure. Urge incontinence disappeared in 66%, no de-novo urgency and 8% reported slower voiding. Satisfaction was 8.9 on a 1 - 10 Scale.

In other words, the Obtape helped most patients but the erosion rate for a minority of Obtape users suffered a significant complication. The researchers concluded: "The success rate of the TOT procedure was high, helping both stress and concomitant urge incontinence, but due to an unacceptably high erosion rate, Obtape (R) was discontinued."

    ★★★★★
  • The case settled and I got a lot more money than I expected. Ron even fought to reduce how much I owed in medical bills so I could get an even larger settlement.
    ★★★★★
  • Miller and Zois is the best firm in the state of Maryland, and without their support, understanding, and just being there when I needed encouragement, I truly do not know how I would have succeeded without them.
