What are the risks and complications of the male sling procedure?

Complications of this type of procedure are rare but may occur. They include bleeding and infection (of the mesh or the bone area or public bone), erosion, inability to urinate (retention of urine -- very rare) or recurrent leakage. We do not require routine blood donation before surgery.
