Assessment of Voiding After Sling


Assessment of Voiding After Sling (AVAS): A Randomized Trial of Two Methods of Post-operative Catheter Management After Midurethral Sling for Female Stress Urinary Incontinence




The purpose of this study is to compare the incidence of catheterization from discharge to 6 weeks postoperatively when using two methods of post-operative voiding evaluation after a mid-urethral sling procedure. The investigators` results may lead to a decreased use of indwelling catheters and their associated morbidity after outpatient sling surgery.
