November 2002 - ATLANTA, GA - Drs. Miklos and Moore TVT research published in leading Journal - As innovators and leaders in the field of minimally invasive incontinence surgery, Drs. Miklos and Moore continue to help determine treatment standards in the field by publishing their research. The Green Journal is one of the leading publications in the Obstetrics and Gynecology literature. In the November 2002 issue, Drs. Miklos and Moore have co-authored two articles about the TVT procedure with other leaders in the Urogynecology community from Harvard University, University of Louisville, and Lehigh Valley Hospital. The first link reveals that the TVT is a highly effective treatment for those patients that have already had a previously failed incontinence procedure in the past and for those who elect to have the TVT as their first incontinence procedure. The second link concludes that if a woman has a voiding dysfunction (urinary retention) after a TVT procedure (occurs in 1.9% of women), then a simple midline release resolves the problem and does not compromise the symptoms of stress incontinence.
