INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The aim of this study is to investigate associations between preoperative resting urethral parameters and objective outcome of laparoscopic colposuspension. METHODS: Data from 219 stress incontinent women who underwent laparoscopic colposuspension, with leakage at standardized pad test repeated after surgery, were collected. Associations between objective cure and preoperative maximum urethral closure pressure, functional urethral length, and continence area were analyzed using receiving operator characteristics curves. The level for 75% cure for each parameter was identified. RESULTS: All parameters were positively associated with cure. Continence area showed the strongest association. No cut-off values for prediction of failure were found. Women having levels equal or higher than the "75% cure level" for all urethral parameters had a cure rate of 88% compared with 55% for women with all parameters lower than this level. CONCLUSIONS: A combination of the urethral parameters may be useful for identifying patients with excellent chance for cure after colposuspension. Further studies are needed on continence area.
