For many years, mid-urethral mesh tape (MUT) was the gold-standard procedure for management of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). However, significant concerns were raised over its safety. We present a case series of total trans-obturator tape (TOT) removals, performed in a tertiary unit over a 3-year period. We aim to evaluate improvement of pain and change in urinary continence symptoms following mesh explantation.
