Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To assess the safety, feasibility, and short-term success of placing Solyx (Boston Scientific, Marlborough, MA) single-incision midurethral sling (SIMUS) using the Dynamic Intraoperative Standing Sling Technique (DISST) in an office setting under local anesthesia.

METHODS: The safety and efficacy of the in-office Solyx DISST procedure for treatment of stress urinary incontinence was assessed 6 months from the procedure. Improvement in stress urinary incontinence was measured using validated questionnaires (Medical, Epidemiologic, and Social Aspects of Aging, MESA; Incontinence Impact Questionnaire-7, IIQ-7; Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Function, PISQ-12) and by a negative standing provocative stress test. Postoperative complications were documented along with subjective pain diaries, return to work/activities, and overall satisfaction.

RESULTS: From July 2019 through February 2020, 20 subjects underwent in-office Solyx procedure by the DISST technique. Six of the 20 (30%) subjects required intraoperative sling adjustments. There were no complications as related to the office-based procedure. Participants reported a favorable intraoperative experience. Subjects had excellent postoperative pain control and early return to work and normal activities. At 6 months, all 20 subjects had negative standing provocative stress tests, showed statistically significant improvements on MESA, IIQ-7, and PISQ-12, and reported high satisfaction and acceptance for the procedure and outcomes. There were no late (>6 weeks) complications associated with the Solyx procedure.

CONCLUSIONS: It appears safe and feasible to perform Solyx SIMUS by the DISST method in the office. Subjects remained dry and reported excellent improvement in symptoms and quality of life 6 months from surgery.
