Abstract

Objectives: Real influence of urinary incontinence symptoms and adopted modes of treatment on patient’s quality of life is not known. Design: Assessment of influence of operative SUI treatment with the use of IVS tape on patient’s quality of life. Material and methods: Prospective study was conducted among 57 patients with SUI symptoms II and III degree (type III according to Blavais), who were classified to apply IVS tape. Diagnostic investigations were completed by questionnaires: IIQ-7 and UDI-6, which were filled by patients. In analysis there were included results obtained before the operation and 6 months after procedure. Results: We recognized women as cured: based on physicians anamnesis – 80,7% of patients, according to UDI-6 – 71,93%. Half year after operation relevant improvement of quality of life, evaluated by IIQ-7 questionnaire, showed 89,47%. Improvement of quality of life correlated with lack of SUI symptoms in anamnesis (r=0,631; p<0,001) and in UDI-6 questionnaire(r=0,597; p<0,001). Conclusions: 1. Operation with the use of IVS tape is effective according to improvement of quality of life in majority of patients treated due to SUI. 2. Efficacy of operative treatment in domain with SUI symptoms correlates with influence of procedure on quality of life. 3. Assessment of SUI operative treatment should include analysis of SUI symptoms and their influence on quality of life, achieved upon standardized questionnaires filled by patients.
