Abstract

Anterior colporraphy and approximation of pubococcygeus muscles appears, from our preliminary results to be a safe, effective technique for the primary treatment of cystocele without compromising the other vaginal profiles but should not be considered as the procedure of choice for patients presenting with manifested or Pot-SUI. Long-term follow-up is needed to evaluate whether these results are durable.
