ABSTRACT
Tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) has been accepted for a therapeutic modality of stress incontinence and presented as easy, safe, effective, and time-saving procedure with cure rate of more than 86% and another 11% significantly improved with no serious complication. However, there is not always safe without severe complications, because the TVT needle has to pass blindly through the pelvic cavity. Furthermore, it may be very serious once it happened. We, herein, present a case who bled to shock following TVT procedure but was controlled conservatively, and review its complications in the literatures.
