ABSTRACT
PURPOSE
Tension-free vaginal tape(TVT) procedure in patient with stress urinary incontinence has become a favorable technique to many urologists because it has many advantages including short duration of admission, low complication and high success rates. We performed TVT folding technique in 2 patients with failed TVT procedure.
MATERIALS AND METHODS

After midline incision in the anterior vaginal wall under local anesthesia, TVT was dissected from the periurethral tissue. Folding TVT with Z-shape with proper tension was done. RESULT: 2 patients who had received TVT folding technique since march 2001 in our institute became dry day and night after 3 months follow up.
