Brief Summary:

Objective: To compare TVT with COLPOSUSPENSION (CS) as primary treatment for stress incontinence (SUI).

Design: Randomised, open, comparative trial 3-years follow-up. Participants: 49 consecutive 35 to 70 years old women with urodynamic SUI. Setting: Urology department of a district general hospital at Leganés (Madrid), Spain.

Intervention: 24 patients randomised to TVT and 25 to CS.

Urinary Incontinence Procedure: Surgical treatment: TVT Procedure: Surgical treatment: colposuspension Phase 4

Detailed Description:

Background: Evidence comparing effectiveness of tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) and Burch's colposuspension (CS) in the long term follow-up is weak.

Objective: To compare TVT with CS as primary treatment for stress incontinence (SUI).

Design: Randomised, open, comparative trial 3-years follow-up. Participants: 49 consecutive 35 to 70 years old women with urodynamic SUI. Setting: Urology department of a district general hospital at Leganés (Madrid), Spain.

Intervention: 24 patients randomised to TVT and 25 to CS. Measurements: Main outcome: Assessment before treatment and at 6-months, 1-year and 3-years postoperatively with the incontinence severity symptoms index (ISS) and the incontinence impact symptoms index (IIS) Secondary outcome: 3 groups to asses cure rates: cured, improved and failure.
