Abstract

Background: Delivery mode following midurethral sling remains controversial. There are no formal guidelines as to the preferred mode of delivery following midurethral sling. Case: A 33-year-old gravida 2 para 2 underwent midurethral sling placement 16 months after the delivery of her first child for severe stress urinary incontinence (SUI). She conceived 2 months postprocedure and had an uneventful antepartum course. She remained without any SUI and delivered via uncomplicated spontaneous vaginal delivery at 38 weeks' gestation. One year after her delivery, shewas still free of SUI symptoms. Conclusions: Midurethral sling placement may be a valid treatment option for patients with stress incontinence even if they are contemplating future pregnancies and subsequent vaginal delivery.
