We present 2 cases of large bladder stones formed on a tension-free vaginal tape ( TVT) which was inadvertently passed through the bladder during the continence procedure. The stones together with the intravesical portion of the slings were removed using a suprapubic approach. High clinical suspicion of bladder complications is necessary when evaluating patients with urinary symptoms after a TVT operation. Copyright (C) 2007.
