Vaginal repair has been recommended in cases of stress urinary incontinence and posterior bladder suspension defect diagnosed by colpocysto-urethrography. Thirty-eight women with stress urinary incontinence and posterior suspension defect have been treated. First, 19 women underwent a vaginal repair. In a second period, another 19 consecutive patients had a colposuspension a.m. Burch. The patients have been evaluated 6 months postoperatively and at a long-term follow-up. No significant difference was found postoperatively in the frequency of symptoms and signs of stress incontinence, either after 6 months or at the long-term follow-up. A significantly smaller frequency of genital prolapse was found in the colposuspension group at long-term follow-up. No side effects such as frequency, urgency or bacteriuria were evident in the group treated by colposuspension. With reservation to the non-randomized allocation, it may be concluded that a radiographic distinction between anterior and posterior bladder suspension defects in choosing the surgical approach is unnecessary.
