Abstract

The clinical and urodynamic short term results after colposuspension for urinary stress incontinence has been studied in a group of young patients in whom menopause was induced surgically and compared with a similarly treated group who did not undergo surgical castration. Clinically, no differences were found in the incidence of diurnal frequency, nocturia, urgency, urge incontinence or stress incontinence between the groups. No urodynamic changes in the cystometric, uroflowmetry and urethral pressure profile measurements were found postoperatively between the two groups. It is concluded that surgically induced menopause in the absence of aging has no effect on the results of colposuspension for urinary stress incontinence in the short term.
