Abstract

Laparoscopic colposuspension with mesh and tackers is gaining popularity for the treatment of stress incontinence because of shorter operator learning curves and increased scarring and fibrosis with surgical success rates comparable to suturing techniques. We report two cases of multiple foreign body erosions requiring reoperation after this technique.
