Retropubic Colposuspension


Retropubic colposuspension (Burch Colposuspension, MMK) aims to correct the position of the bladder and urethra by sewing the bladder neck and urethra directly to the surrounding pelvic bone or nearby structures. There are many variants, but, in general, they are effective only for women with urethral hypermobility. Most procedures require a general or spinal anesthetic and a 2-day hospital stay. These are rarely used today as mid-urethral slings have proven to be more successful and less invasive.
