The objectives of our study were to compare the laparoscopic Burch colposuspension with Trans- obturator Tape (TOT) procedure."n"nMethods: This randomized clinical trial was conducted on 40 patients with stress incontinence referred to Arash hospital from 2007 to 2009. All patients were randomly divided in two groups (laparoscopic Burch and TOT). Patient information was using obtained demographic, I-QOL (Which contained 22 questions), UDI-6 (urinary symptoms), ISI (Severity of urinary incontinence) questionnaires and urodynamic test."n"nResults: The data collected from 19 patients in TOT group and 16 patients in laparoscopic Burch groups. The objective cure rate which was determined by no urinary leakage during stress and were analyzed urodynamic evaluation was 75% in laparoscopic and 84.2% in TOT (p=0.53). Result of ISI questionnaire with showing the subjective cure rate following surgery had no significant difference between two groups (p=0.23). UDI-6 questionnaire was used to compare the result of both groups before and after surgery and showed that the improvement in Urgency was significant in TOT in compare to Burch (p=0.04). I-QOL score significantly increased in both groups after six months of operation (p
