Between the years 1984 and 1993, a total of 72 female patients underwent endoscopic suspension of bladder neck for treatment of stress urinary incontinence at the King Hussein Medical Center and Hamad General Hospital, Amman, Jordan. The age of the study patients ranged between 32 and 75 years (mean: 46.5 years). Fifteen (20.8%) had history of previous operations for incontinence. The overall success rate achieved was 93.1%. Post­operative complications were encountered in seven (9.8%) patients within follow-up period of 4 to 43 months. Treatment failure occurred in five patients (6.9%). Our experience further confirms that endoscopic suspension of the bladder neck is a simple and reliable procedure in the treatment of female stress urinary incontinence.
