Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of subjects who meet the criteria of cure at 12 months [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Cure is defined as negative Cough Stress Test (CST) and an answer "no" to question 3 "Do you usually experience urine leakage related to coughing, sneezing, or laughing?" of the UDI-6 questionnaire

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of subjects who have a negative cough stress test at each visit [ Time Frame: 6 weeks, 6 months, 1 year, 2 year, 3 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of subjects who meet the criteria of cure at each other visit [ Time Frame: 6 weeks, 6 months, 2 year, 3 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Subject continence status measured by the 24-hour pad weight [ Time Frame: 6 weeks, 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment of self reported symptoms and subject QoL through the scoring of validated questionnaires: ICIQ-UI SF, I-QOL, UDI-6 and IIQ-7 [ Time Frame: 6 weeks, 6 months, 1 year, 2 year, 3 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Postoperatively subject impression of improvement (via PGI-I questionnaire) and satisfaction at each post-operative visit [ Time Frame: 6 weeks, 6 months, 1 year, 2 year, 3 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment of Qmax variations [ Time Frame: 6 weeks, 1year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment of PVR variations [ Time Frame: 6 weeks, 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment of the operation duration and the type of anaesthesia used [ Time Frame: Operative period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assessment of device and procedure related adverse events [ Time Frame: Operative period, 6 weeks, 6 months, 1 year, 2 year, 3 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Assessment of postoperative pain [ Time Frame: operative period, 6 weeks, 6 months, 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Visual Analogue Scale from 0 "no pain" to 10 "extreme pain"
