A new laparoscopic Burch procedure with preperitoneal balloon dissection is introduced. A stress incontinence case without cystocele was operated by laparoscopic extraperitoneal colposuspension. The procedure was found to be effective a year after and no complications were seen. The extraperitoneal Burch procedure has the advantages of easy dissection, less bleeding, pain, and adhesion formation, a lower chance of injury to intraperitoneal organs, and short hospital stay and operation time; but the procedure has the disadvantages of a new anatomy orientation and the additional cost of a disposable balloon dissection set.
