• Capar procedure;
  • stress urinary incontinence;
  • transvaginal Burch operation

Several techniques have been developed for the management of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). To establish 5-year outcomes for women who underwent our previously described new retropubic suspension operation (transvaginal Burch operation) for SUI at the Meram Medicine Faculty, a prospective study was performed on 231 women who had been operated on for stress incontinence and who had completed 5 years of follow up. We observed complete remission during the follow-up period in 215 women (93%). No major complication related to the procedure was reported, and results were found to be satisfactory and encouraging.
