We evaluate quality of life and sexual function before and after transobturator tape procedure (TOT) using the International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire (ICIQ-SF) and Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI). Between 2008 and 2013, 92 patients with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) underwent TOT procedure. A total of 81 patients were sexual active and enrolled in the study. All patients completed the Turkish translation ICIQ-SF and FSFI forms before and 1, 3, 6, 12 months after surgery. To evaluate the impact of incontinence and TOT success on sexual function, we compared patients that were dry after surgery and patients still incontinent and/or facing complication.
