Authors' objectives:

This study aims to assess the current evidence on transobturator foramen procedures for stress urinary incontinence.

Authors' recomendations: 1.1 Current evidence on the safety and short-term efficacy of transobturator foramen procedures for stress urinary incontinence appears adequate to support the use of these procedures provided that the normal arrangements are in place for consent, audit and clinical governance. 1.2 Transobturator foramen procedures for stress incontinence should only be performed by clinicians with a particular expertise in the assessment and treatment of female urinary incontinence, following adequate mentoring. 1.3 Long-term results of the procedures are not available and clinicians are encouraged to collect data on rates of recurrence and other late complications.
