We present a case of a bladder stone that had formed around the intravesical portion of tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) material following unnoticed bladder perforation during the procedure. Endoscopic lithotripsy of the bladder calculi was performed and the TVT sling material was removed by an endoscopic approach. High clinical suspicion of bladder complications is necessary when evaluating patients presenting with urinary symptoms after a TVT procedure.
