OBJECTIVES: Bladder neck suspension using polypropylene is an established technique for treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). We report our retrospective audit of the bladder neck sling in SUI. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-one patients with SUI operated at our institute were included in the study. The audit was performed using the case records for -- patient demographics, detailed history and examination, routine hemogram, renal function tests, urine culture sensitivity, urine microscopic examination and uroflowmetery + cystometrogram(CMG). After complete evaluation, all patients underwent bladder neck suspension using polypropylene mesh. RESULTS: Twenty-one patients with mean age of 55 years underwent bladder neck sling surgery. Mean duration of surgery was 67 minutes (50-100 minutes). Mean operative blood loss of 100ml. Mean duration of hospital stay was 2days (1-5 days). Eighteen patients had complete or significant decrease in the severity of stress urinary incontinence in immediate post-operative period. Mean duration of follow up of patients was 19 months (3-28 months). All patients were dry at the end of the follow up. CONCLUSIONS: Broad base polypropylene mesh gives good continence results in patients of SUI.
