Objectives: Numerous diagnostic instruments have been used in modern urogynecology; alas, sufficient comparative analysis between most of them has not been carried out in world literature. Design: The aim of the study was to compare the results of selected urogynecology tests, used to analyze the effectiveness of SUI treatment, using Burch colposuspension and IVS tape. Material: The study was conducted among 76 patients selected for operative treatment of SUI II and III degree, using of Burch colposuspension (I group, n=47) and IVS tape, Tyco (II group, n=29). Methods: The following investigations: urogynecologic anamnesis and examination with cough test, miction diary, pad test, urodynamic exam and UDI-6 questionnaire, have been used to evaluate SUI symptoms before and half a year after the operation. Results: The percentage of the cured, depending on the adopted urogynecology investigation, oscillated in group I between 56,8% to 91,5%, and 56,5% to 86,2% in group II. The best results were obtained in anamnesis and cough test. Conclusions: 1. The analyzed methods of urogynecology tests correlate with anamnesis as far as SUI symptoms after operative treatment are concerned. 2. There are relevant differences between several tests, in case of the estimation of SUI cure rate after colposuspension, as well as when using IVS tape..
