A Bladder Stone 28 Years After Burch Colposuspension

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An 86-year-old lady was referred for a 3-cm bladder stone 28 years after Burch colposuspension. Cystoscopy showed a stone over a nonabsorbable suture, eroding from the right anterolateral bladder wall. The patient underwent a transurethral holmium laser lithotripsy and thulium laser removal of the eroded bladder wall. A high index of suspicion of suture erosion should always be present in case of de novo symptoms in women who underwent colposuspension, even in the long-term period.
