PMID:  3240894     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Transabdominal urethrocystopexy by using a two-component fibrin sealant as a substitute for sutures was performed in 99 women suffering from proved urinary stress incontinence. All were assessed preoperatively, both clinically and by urodynamic tests. This report deals with the results after a follow-up period not shorter than 1 year and up to 4 years. We found it essential not to report postoperative results concerning observation periods shorter than 1 year, as most relapses are observed more than 1 year after operation. Success was defined as absence of objective urine loss at coughing or straining with full bladder in upright position. The results imply that this simple technique is worthy of trial in correcting urinary stress incontinence in women.
