Introduction and hypothesis The aims of this study are to study the surgical outcomes in patients with stresspredominant mixed urinary incontinence (MUI) treated with tension-free vaginal tape, and to evaluate the effect of concomitant anterior colpoplasty. Methods A total of 134 women with MUI clinical and urodynamic were assessed at 6 months and annually (maximum 9 years) after surgery. Results As a whole, a complete healing of 49-51% at 3 years is observed, which hence could result in a tax drop of 36.8% at 5-9 years. Nevertheless, the rate of healing or improvement (subjective) is 73.7% at long term (5-9 years). There were no significant differences between the two techniques used: TVT vs TVT-Obturator. On the other hand, we have found significant differences between association of anterior colpoplasty and not (complete healing rate 34.6% vs 64.6%, p=0.014), at 2 years of monitoring. Conclusions MUI with cystocele presents better surgical results for two components of incontinence, with its physiopathogenic implications. © The International Urogynecological Association 2011.
