What is a bladder tack?

Can someone explain this bladder thing to me? What is having your bladder tacked or pinned? When would someone need to have this done? I have to go in on Monday to speak to a surgeon about having a hyster and I want to be informed.
I have a lot of problems with my bladder, constantly having to urinate, pain, problems at times when I laugh or cough and plus my bladder does not hold very much at any one time. Would something like this consitute a tack?
Thanks for your help, I have never heard of this before.

bladder tack

Hi Lilshann!

I thought this thread might be helpful to you; it discusses bladder tack.


I think it's a very good idea to explore your options for your bladder symptoms with your DR in conjuction with your discussion about hysterectomy.

Best wishes!

What is a bladder tack?

Hi Lilshan

My understanding is that there are a few different type of bladder procedures which are commonly done. I had a Burch repair along with my TAH. The symptoms which prompted it were "stress incontinince (sp?). Anyways, I would leak whenever I coughed or sneezed. I also had the pressure and frequency issues with the bladder, but I think those were helped with the removal of the enlarged uterus. The Burch procedure involves pulling the neck of the bladder up and permanently stiching it to muscle I think.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any more questions.

What is a bladder tack?

I am having a TAH and also getting a bladder sling. My doctor described it as a hammock for the bladder. I was wondering if this is the same thing.
