Burch Bladder Suspension/Bladder Tacking?

Is this the same thing? I had total abdominal hysterectomy. (able to keep ovaries) and the Burch Bladder suspension. My bladder is working really well so far. I was just wondering if this is the same procedure and what should I excpect from the surgery.

Burch Bladder Suspension/Bladder Tacking?

Hi Debbie,
I have wondered this same thing because I had both done too. It has been my understanding that some people only have the bladder tack done and not the sling. I would love to have that confirmed by someone though. I just keep forgetting to ask my dr when I'm in there.
I haven't had any problems other than right at first I had to self cath for a while. I wasn't completely emptying. It cleared up just fine and I love that I don't have to worry about the incontinence anymore. I don't have any problems with that at all. I'm so glad I had it done.

Burch Bladder Suspension/Bladder Tacking?

Rita and Debbie,
see the following exerpt from an article I read online. The bladder is "Slung" and "tacked" with a BURCH.
The Burch repair, using permanent sutures, creates a “hammock” for the urethra and bladder neck, so that the tissues will not bounce when exposed to increased abdominal pressure, and the patient will not lose her urine.
Hope this helps,
