Voiding dysfunction following cystourethropexy: its evaluation and management.


Journal Article

We report on 15 women who underwent cystourethropexy for anatomical stress incontinence and who subsequently had dysfunctional voiding symptoms. All 15 women underwent retropubic takedown of the prior repair and substitution with an obturator shelf repair. All 13 women who had symptoms of bladder instability experienced resolution of these symptoms. Of 7 patients who were in urinary retention and required clean intermittent catheterization only 1 continued to require clean intermittent catheterization to facilitate bladder emptying after obturator shelf substitution. In this series a successful outcome was achieved in 14 of 15 patients (93%).
