Although the mid-urethral sling has largely replaced the retropubic colposuspension, the American Urological Association continues to recommend its use for SUI, specifically in those who are undergoing a concomitant abdominal-pelvic procedure or who do not wish to use mesh (Kobashi et al., 2017).
These procedures include retropubic colposuspensions (Burch colposuspension and the Marshall-Marchetti-Krantz procedure), the traditional bladder-neck sling, and the tension-free vaginal tape procedure.[12] Retropubic colposuspension could be performed by abdominal, laparoscopic, or robotic routes.
