Burch operation has been effective method for the treatment of stress incontinence. Burch operation is a well-accepted procedure for treating stress urinary incontinence secondary to urethral hypermobility without intrinsic sphincter deficiency and is the reference standard with which other procedures are compared. This study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the Choi's hook in laparoscopic Burch operation. METHODS: This study included 47 patients who had undergone laparoscopic Burch operation from October 2000 through March 2005. Of these 47 patients, 27 patients underwent traditional laparoscopic Burch operation (Group 1) and 20 patients underwent laparoscopic Burch operation with Choi's Hook on anchoring the endopelvic fascia to the Cooper's ligament (Group 2). RESULTS: The mean age of patients of Group 1 was 55.6+/-9.37 years of age and that of Group 2 was 56.0+/-5.93 years of age. There is no difference in the mean age of patients (P>0.05). The mean operating time was 90.5+/-15.32 minutes for Group 1 and 38.5+/-10.14 minute for Group 2. The mean operating time was shorter in Group 2 than Group 1 (P<0.05). There was no difference in recurrence rate and complication rate between Group 1 and Group 2 (P>0.05). CONCLUSION: We performed laparoscopic Burch operation with the Choi's Hook on anchoring the endopelvic fascia to the Cooper's ligament. When we compared traditional laparoscopic Burch operation with laparoscopic Burch operation with Choi's Hook, we could shorten the operation time using the Choi's Hook.
