Study Design

Observational model cohort
Time perspective prospective

Primary Outcomes

Evaluation of long-term effectiveness after implantation of MiniArc sling via qualitative(i.e.UDI-6 and IIQ-7) and quantitative measurement (i.e.pad weight test and cough stress test) in females for treatment of SUI in general post-market use.
time frame: 2 years

Secondary Outcomes

Evaluation of procedural variables of the implantation,outcomes,and long-term safety.These outcomes will be measured via questionnaires, procedural data, and report of adverse events.
time frame: 2 years
