Since the introduction of tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) procedure by Ulmsten, the majority of reports have concentrated on TVT procedure's success to correct urinary stress incontinence with fewer reports on its complications. In this study, we describe the first case in the English literature, of urethral diverticulum, which occurred after the use of polypropylene synthetic sling in a woman with previous vaginal surgery.
