  Purpose

It is unknown whether it is best to do the TVT( procedure for urinary stress incontinence in women) at the time of prolapse surgery or at a later date. Women with both conditions were randomized to both procedures together or the TVT 3 months after the prolapse surgery. Any or no leakage when couching was the main end-point, evaluated 1 year after the last surgery

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Any or no leakage of urine when coughing [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The cure of urinary stress incontinence (USI) by only prolapse surgery [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Result of prolapse surgery in two intervention strategies in women suffering from both genital prolapse and USI [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: 1
Group I
Procedure: Vaginal Repair for prolapse, TVT procedure
  1. TVT at the time of Vaginal Repair
  2. TVT 3 months after Vaginal Repair
Procedure: TVT and Prolapse surgery
  1. TVT at the time of Prolapse surgery
  2. TVT 3 months after Prolapse Surgery
Active Comparator: 2
Group II
Procedure: Vaginal Repair for prolapse, TVT procedure
  1. TVT at the time of Vaginal Repair
  2. TVT 3 months after Vaginal Repair
Procedure: TVT and Prolapse surgery
  1. TVT at the time of Prolapse surgery
  2. TVT 3 months after Prolapse Surgery

Detailed Description:

All women were evaluated by the POP-Q (pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification) prior to surgery and 1 year after.

Examination for urinary leakage was done prior to surgery and 1 year after. Group 2 was also examined after prolapse surgery to see if TVT was still needed.
