Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is the complaint of involuntary loss of urine during episodes of high intraabdominal pressure like laughing, sneezing, jumping, etc. It occurs due to loss of urethral support resulting in inadequate urethral closure against episodes of high intra-abdominal pressure. On failure of conservative and medical treatment, surgical procedure is advised to restore the normal intra-abdominal position of the urethra by reinforcing its supports. This video shows the steps of the Transobturator approach of Sling placement in a female patient. The viewer would be able to see the steps of the procedure including careful evaluation and selection of the patient, moving on to a detailed description of all steps in a simplified way and tips of avoiding potential complications by using the correct surgical technique. The learning objective is to provide viewers the step by step approach of performing the Transobturator approach (TOT) with ease and without fear of complications, and thus will be helpful for all Urologists, Gynecologists, Urogynecologists, who are dealing with Female Urology.

Transobturator approach of sling placement-- introduction. Treatment for female stress urinary incontinence has seen revolutionary changes in the last 15 years, and minimally invasive techniques of midurethral vaginal sling placement have been proven safe and effective with patient satisfaction rates of over 90%. To reduce undesired complications of bowel and bladder injuries with transvaginal retropubic tape, the transobturator approach was introduced by Delorme in 2001, which provides a safer means to place attention free mesh tape sling with seemingly equivalent cure rates and lower rates of complications in comparison to transvaginal approach. The mean operating time is also significantly shorter, and risk of bladder injury and post-operative urinary retention, or de novo urge as incontinence, is also considerably lower than other sling procedures.
