The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-term complications of the intravaginal slingplasty (IVS) operation for stress urinary incontinence in women operated 5 years ago. Out of 25 operated patients, seven patients experienced erosion up to 5 years after the primary operations. In six patients, parts of the tape had to be removed several times. Two patients developed a suprapubic abscess. We recommend that the IVS tape is abandoned.
