Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when the muscles holding pelvic organs (e.g., the uterus or bladder) weaken and the organs fall or slide down into the vagina. Pelvic organ prolapse can be corrected with surgery. However, women who have this surgery may develop urinary incontinence. This study will determine how doctors can predict this problem and whether an additional surgical procedure at the time of prolapse surgery can prevent the development of urinary incontinence.
Many women have surgery for pelvic organ prolapse (cystocele, uterine prolapse, rectocele). Women with advanced pelvic organ prolapse may experience stress urinary incontinence following surgery to repair the prolapse. Development of incontinence is unpredictable. This study will determine which, if any, clinical tests are useful for predicting post-operative urinary incontinence. The study will also determine if a Burch urethropexy should be performed routinely or selectively at the time of sacrocolpopexy in continent women.
Women with pelvic organ prolapse who are scheduled for prolapse repair will be randomized to a Burch urethropexy group or to a control group. Women in the Burch group will undergo urethropexy at the time of prolapse repair. Assessments will include a quality of life telephone interview, urodynamic testing, and physical examination. Follow-up evaluations occur at 6 weeks, 3 months, and 1 and 2 years following surgery. Post-operative phone interviews will occur at 3 months, 6 months, and 1 and 2 years.

Involuntary loss of URINE, such as leaking of urine. It is a symptom of various underlying pathological processes. Major types of incontinence include URINARY URGE INCONTINENCE and URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE.
Abnormal descent of a pelvic organ resulting in the protrusion of the organ beyond its normal anatomical confines. Symptoms often include vaginal discomfort, DYSPAREUNIA; URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE; and FECAL INCONTINENCE.
An ANTIMUSCARINIC AGENT selective for the MUSCARINIC RECEPTORS of the BLADDER that is used in the treatment of URINARY INCONTINENCE and URINARY URGE INCONTINENCE.
Support structures, made from natural or synthetic materials, that are implanted below the URETHRA to treat URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE.
Symptoms of disorders of the lower urinary tract including frequency, NOCTURIA; urgency, incomplete voiding, and URINARY INCONTINENCE. They are often associated with OVERACTIVE BLADDER; URINARY INCOMPETENCE; and INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS. Lower urinary tract symptoms in males were traditionally called PROSTATISM.
