|This retrospective cohort study evaluated all patients who underwent a midurethral sling surgery for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) (2005-2016) within a large managed care organization of 4.5 million members.|
|In this cohort of 17,030 patients treated with primary midurethral slings, the overall reoperation rate was 2.1% at 1 year, 4.5% at 5 years, and 6.0% at 9 years. Risk of reoperation was affected by race (P=.04), with Asian or Pacific Islander patients having a lower reoperation rate when compared with white patients. Reoperation rate for mesh revision or removal was 0.7% at 1 year, 1.0% at 5 years, and 1.1% at 9 years. Reoperation for recurrent SUI was 1.6% at 1 year, 3.9% at 5 years, and 5.2% at 9 years. Risk of reoperation for recurrent SUI was affected by the type of sling, with reoperation more common after single-incision compared with retropubic sling.
