AAGL is pleased to present this live telesurgery on Single Incision Slings that first took place at AAGL 2014. This case was a live surgical demonstration of an office based single incision sling.

It demonstrated an effective pre-procedure protocol to promote patient safety and comfort. The technique of an optimal local anesthestic block was shown. Proper dissection, sling placement and sling adjustment was also demonstrated.
