Objective To determine the effectiveness of the tension‐free vaginal tape (TVT) in obese women with genuine stress incontinence (GSI), in whom obesity is often considered a relative contraindication to surgical treatment by traditional approaches, e.g. Burch colposuspension and slings (which are difficult and carry increased morbidity) or injectable agents (which although simple, are unpredictable and expensive).
