A pilot study was conducted in 5 female patients of anatomical stress urinary incontinence, who were repaired by cost reductive, modified extraperitoneal bladder neck suspension utilizing principles of Burch's colposuspension. All patients are showing good results except our first patient who occasionally leaks on stress although symptomatically improved substantially at follow-up of 12-24 months. The modified cost reductive technique of extraperitoneal bladder neck suspension is affordable and one can dispense with expensive disposable gadgets, thus providing the benefit of newer development at comparable cost to open surgery with additional advantages of low morbidity, shorter hospital stay and early recuperation with an excellent cosmesis.
