Patient satisfaction with laparoscopic Burch retropubic urethropexy.
J Reprod Med. 2000 Nov; 45(11):939-43.JR

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To assess six-month and three- to four-year patient-oriented outcomes after laparoscopic Burch retropubic urethropexy.

STUDY DESIGN

Twenty-two women with urodynamically proven genuine stress incontinence with urethral hypermobility underwent laparoscopic Burch retropubic urethropexy. Preoperatively, all 22 women completed a questionnaire concerning their incontinence. Postoperative measures of symptoms of incontinence, impact of incontinence on daily activities and patient satisfaction were assessed at six months and three to four years postoperatively. In those women who were followed, the questionnaire data at the three-time points (preoperative, six months and three to four years) were compared.

RESULTS

Thirteen women (59%) completed postoperative questionnaires at six months and three to four years. When compared to preoperative data, there was a significant improvement in symptoms of stress incontinence at six months (P = .0005) and at three to four years (P = .002). There was also a significant reduction in limitations on daily activities at six months (P = .0005) and at three to four years (P = .0005) as compared to preoperative data. Twelve of the 13 women considered their surgery successful at six months and at three to four years.

CONCLUSION

After laparoscopic Burch retropubic urethropexy, there was a significant improvement in patient-oriented outcomes, including complaints of incontinence and functional status.
