OBJECTIVE
To estimate the efficiency of the single incision adjustable mini sling, Ajust, in the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) concomitant with advanced pelvic organ prolapse (POP) in eldly women.

METHODS
From Dec. 2013 to Jul. 2014, 58 patients who had been diagnosed as SUI combined with advanced POP underwent both single incision adjustable mini sling and reductive surgery for advanced POP in the First Affiliated Hospital, General Hospital of People's Liberation Army. Fifty-eight patients were assessed to evaluate the safety and efficiency at 2, 6, 12 months postoperatively. The primary outcomes include objective and subjective cure rate, Ajust sling related complications, ralues of urinary distress inventory (UDI-6), incontinence impact questionnaire short form (IIQ-7) and patient global impression of change (PGI-C).

RESULTS
There was no case of leakage tested by cough test, so the objective cure rate for anti-incontinence had been achived to 100% (58/58) at a mean 12 months follow-up. There were 91% (53/58) of the patients' PGI-C score reached 5, and 9% (5/58) of the patients' PGI-C score reached 4. No case underwent the reoperation. There was no case of hematoma, bladder perforation, urethral injury, groin pain, as well as pain in the puncture point during the perioperative period of time. The values of UDI-6 and IIQ-7 declined significantly postoperatively (P < 0.01).

CONCLUSIONS
The single incision mini sling, Ajust, presents satisfactory objective and subjective cure rate in the treatment of mild and moderate SUI combined with severe POP in the eldly womem. The advantages of this mini sling includes mini-invasiveness, simple to use, rare complications and less urinary retention rate. It is a procedure worth recommending in the clinical treatment of mild to moderate SUI.
