ROSARIO, Javier del; URENA, Rubén; MANDULEY, Alejandro  and  CORDOBA, Lilia. Chronic pelvic pain as a complication of cystourethropexy with tension free vaginal tape: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.5, pp.533-535. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To report an interesting case of a rare complication of cystourethropexy, as well as its precise diagnosis and results after treatment. Methods: We reviewed the medical records of the patients as well as their operative report and she underwent outpatient follow-up for the following six months. We descriptively report the findings. Results: It is the case of a female patient presenting a foreign body rejection of a suburethral tension free vaginal tape (TVT). She complained of severe pain in the immediate postoperative period, which led to retrieval of the tape in spite of a good continence result. Conclusions: Foreign body rejection is a rare complication of vaginal tapes; it is rarely taken into account but it should be present in any exclusion diagnosis because the possibility of tape retrieval is not always associated with recurrence of the incontinence.

Keywords : Pelvic pain; Incontinence; Cystourethropexy.
