  • 24 Month Cumulative Success Rate Computed From Kaplan Meier Time-to-event Analysis (Reported as Percent Success). [ Time Frame: Two years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Success defined as composite measure including: no self-reported incontinence symptoms reported on the Medical, Epidemiologic, and Social Aspects of Aging Project (MESA) questionnaire, <15g in pad weight during 24 hr pad test, no incontinence episodes on 3-day voiding diary, negative results (no leakage) on provocative stress test at standardized bladder volume, no retreatment for urinary incontinence. Additional treatment for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) includes anti-incontinence surgery, tightening of sling, collagen injections, medication, behavioral treatment, or devices specifically for the treatment of SUI.

Comparison of Surgical Procedures to Reduce Urinary Stress Incontinence
Randomized Clinical Trial of the Burch Modified Tanagho and Autologous Fascia Sling Procedures for Women With Predominantly Stress Urinary Incontinence

The primary aim of this clinical trial is to compare the treatment success for two surgical procedures that are frequently used and have similar cure rates, yet have not been compared directly to each other in a large, rigorously conducted randomized trial. The secondary aims of the trial are to compare other outcomes for the two surgical procedures, including quality of life, sexual function, satisfaction with treatment outcomes, complications, and need for other treatment(s)after surgery. Follow-up will be a minimum of two years and up to four years.

Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Urinary Incontinence
  • Procedure: Burch Modified Tanagho
    The Burch colposuspension is a well-established procedure for surgically treating women with stress urinary incontinence. The Burch modified colposuspension suspends the anterior vaginal wall (at the level of the bladder neck) with permanent sutures tied to the iliopectineal ligament.
  • Procedure: Autologous Fascia Sling
    The fascial sling is also a well-established procedure for surgically treating women with stress urinary incontinence. The autologous sling procedure places a harvested strip of rectus fascia transvaginally at the level of the proximal urethra. The fascial strip is secured superiorly to the rectus fascia with permanent sutures

    Intervention: Procedure: Burch Modified Tanagho
  • Sling
