Post-prostatectomy incontinence

Four-year follow-up on 68 patients with a new post-operatively adjustable long-term implant for post-prostatectomy stress incontinence: ProACT™.

This paper presents 4-year follow-up results for patients enrolled in a pivotal study conducted to support an FDA premarket approval application (PMAA). The study evaluated the safety and efficacy of the ProACT Adjustable Continence Therapy for the treatment of post-prostatectomy stress urinary incontinence (SUI).

Effects of Progressive Resistance Training on Post-Surgery Incontinence in Men with Prostate Cancer.

We evaluated the efficacy of progressive resistance training of the pelvic floor muscle for post-prostatectomy incontinence. In this prospective study, 59 patients who underwent radical prostatectomy were evaluated preoperatively.

Long-term results of ProACT primary and repeat implantation for treatment of stress urinary incontinence in men.

Urinary incontinence in men after radical prostatectomy affects strongly quality of life. If conservative treatment fails, surgical treatment consists of implantable devices. If the requirement of manual dexterity in the artificial sphincter is to be avoided, the ProACT system offers a readjustable system, which shows good continence, but also high revision rates.

Treatment with an adjustable long-term implant for post-prostatectomy stress incontinence: The ProACT™ pivotal trial.

This paper presents 18-month follow-up results for patients enrolled in a pivotal study conducted to support an FDA premarket approval application (PMAA). The trial evaluated the safety and efficacy of the ProACT Adjustable Continence Therapy for the treatment of post-prostatectomy stress urinary incontinence (SUI).

Intrafascial nerve-sparing radical prostatectomy improves patients' postoperative continence recovery and erectile function: A pooled analysis based on available literatures.

Intrafascial nerve-sparing prostatectomy has been currently applied based on the updated anatomic understanding of periprostatic cavernous nerves, in order to provide patients better postoperative recovery of continence and potency.

[The accuracy of patients' perceptions of the risks associated with localised prostate cancer treatments].

To assess the accuracy of patients' perceptions of the risks associated with localised prostate cancer treatments (radical prostatectomy [RP], radiotherapy [RT], and active surveillance [AS]), and to identify correlates of misperceptions.

Development of a prediction model for late urinary incontinence, hematuria, pain and voiding frequency among irradiated prostate cancer patients.

Incontinence, hematuria, voiding frequency and pain during voiding are possible side effects of radiotherapy among patients treated for prostate cancer. The objective of this study was to develop multivariable NTCP models for these side effects.
