Post-prostatectomy incontinence

Impact of Adjuvant Radiation on Artificial Urinary Sphincter Durability in Post-Prostatectomy Patients.

To further understand the implications of adjuvant radiation on artificial urinary sphincter durability (AUS) in post-prostatectomy patients.

158 post-prostatectomy patients, identified by retrospective chart review, underwent AUS placement by one surgeon from 2008 - 2016.

Urinary Incontinence-85: An Expanded Prostate Cancer Composite (EPIC) Score Cutoff Value for Urinary Incontinence Determined Using Long-term Functional Data by Repeated Prospective EPIC-Score Self-assessment After Radical Prostatectomy.

To determine an objective cutoff value (COV) for urinary incontinence (UI) using the Expanded Prostate Cancer Composite (EPIC) score after radical prostatectomy (RP).

From 2004-2013, all RP patients at our institution completed the EPIC urinary domain (EPIC-UD) questionnaire preoperatively and 6 weeks; 3, 6, 9, 12, and 18 months postoperatively; and yearly thereafter.

Diminished long-term recovery of peak flow rate (PFR) after robotic prostatectomy in men with baseline PFR <10 mL/s and incidental association with high-risk prostate cancer.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) on uroflowmetry (UF) parameters among men with baseline peak flow rates (PFR) <10 mL/s.

A single-surgeon RARP database of 1082 men who underwent prospective UF testing was analyzed.

[Incontinence after radical prostatectomy : Male Sling or "best option" first?]

Postprostatectomy incontinence (PPI) is a rare complication of radical prostatectomy, and it may lead to severe limitations for the patient and loss of quality of life. Several different surgical options for the therapy of PPI are available and may be chosen depending on severity of incontinence, residual urethral sphincter function, and previous history of radiotherapy.
