This article is from Korean Journal of Urology, volume 55.AbstractPurpose: We evaluated the long-term outcome of a readjustable midurethral sling system Remeex in the treatment of recurrence of stress urinary incontinence SUI after surgical treatment or SUI with intrinsic sphincter deficiency ISD. Materials and Methods: This study included 19 patients who underwent the Remeex procedure with a mean of 45.6 months of follow-up. The patients had responded to a telephone questionnaire. Thirteen patients had ISD, four patients had SUI recurrence, and two patients had both. The questionnaire included subjective cure and satisfaction surveys and also recommended surgery to some patients. Results: The mean patient age was 69.1 years range, 50-85 years, the mean parity was 2.79 times range, 2-5 times, and the mean follow-up period was 45.6 months range, 21-72 months. The long-term follow-up cure rate was 79%, the improvement rate was 21%, and the fail rate was 0%. The long-term follow-up -very satisfactory- rate was 26.3%, the -satisfactory- rate was 73.7%, and the -usual- and -unsatisfactory- rates were both 0%. In addition to these results, 16 patients 84.2% would recommend the Remeex procedure to other patients with SUI recurrence or ISD. After the procedure, four patients had urinary retention, three patients had difficulty emptying, and one patient had SUI recurrence. Furthermore, all of the patients subsequently endured sling readjustments. Conclusions: After long-term follow-up, the Remeex system showed good cure rates and subjective satisfaction rates that were similar to the results found at the 1-year follow-up, and minimal complications were reported. Therefore, the Remeex system is effective in treating patients with SUI recurrence or ISD.
