PURPOSE: We present the prospective, intermediate-term results for cadaveric prolapse repair with sling as combined treatment of stress urinary incontinence and cystocele. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 251 of 295 (85%) patients undergoing cadaveric prolapse repair with sling (CaPS) had at least 6 months of questionnaire and pelvic examination followup. All patients had objectively demonstrated stress urinary incontinence and grade 2 to 4 cystocele before surgery. Followup outcome measures included a validated subjective continence and patient satisfaction questionnaire, SEAPI (stress incontinence, emptying, anatomy, protection, inhibition) scores, pelvic examination for prolapse recurrence and complications, and quality of life scores. RESULTS: The overall patient reported subjective incontinence cured/dry rate (no incontinence episodes of any type) was 114 of 251 (45%), the cured/improved rate (50% improvement or greater) was 192 of 251 (76%) and the failed rate (less than 50% improvement) was 59 of 251 (24%). When considering stress urinary incontinence the cured/dry rate was 141 of 251 (56%), cured/improved rate was 207 of 251 (82%) and failed rate was 44 of 251 (17.5%), with 17 of the 44 (39%) cases having mixed urinary incontinence. Of the 59 failures 33 (56%) occurred after 12 months of followup. Of 153 patients 13 (8.5%) experienced de novo urge incontinence. The symptomatic cystocele recurrence rate was 18 of 251 (7%). There were statistically significant improvements in SEAPI and prolapse quality of life scores. Of 251 patients 200 (80%) were at least 50% satisfied and of 251 193 (77%) stated they would undergo the CaPS procedure again. CONCLUSIONS: With a maximum followup of 5 years in patients undergoing CaPS, we have seen excellent, durable cystocele repair results. While our subjective continence rates have decreased with an increasing number of late failures, we continue to observe significant improvement in SEAPI scores and quality of life with good patient satisfaction and low morbidity.
