To investigate storage symptoms following robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RARP), focused on de novo overactive bladder (OAB), and to evaluate the factors related to de novo OAB occurrence.
Surgery in patients with large prostates due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) results in severe dysuria manifesting as frequent or urgent need to urinate and urinary incontinence. Traditionally, these conditions are treated with alpha blockers.
To evaluate urodynamic alterations after sub-urethral sling surgery (SSU) in patients with post-prostatectomy urinary incontinence (PPUI).
We evaluated data of 22 patients submitted to radical prostatectomy (RP) or transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) that presented post-surgical urinary incontinence and were treated with SSU implant in a pilot study previously performed in our institution.
To estimate the radiobiological parameters of three popular normal tissue complication probability (NTCP) models, which describe the dose-response relations of bladder regarding different acute urinary symptoms during post-prostatectomy radiotherapy (RT).
To assess the impact of prolonged catheterization time on 1-week (short-term), 3-month (intermediate-term) and 1-year (long-term) UC.
Between 2008 and 2015, 6918 men underwent RP by four high-volume surgeons.
To compare the length of the membranous (functional) urethra in male patients who underwent the male trans-obturator sling (TOS) for post radical prostatectomy urinary incontinence (PPI). The TOS is in established use for treatment of PPI however the precise mechanism of action is unknown.
Goal of the study was an analysis of functional outcomes after radical prostatectomy (RP) in a large cohort of patients.
Functional outcomes were assessed with the ICIQ-SF questionnaire and daily pad-usage for the evaluation of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) as well as with the IIEF-5 score for the evaluation of erectile dysfunction (ED).
