Article Title: Treatment options for post-prostatectomy incontinence
Abstract: Introduction: Persistent urinary incontinence after radical prostatectomy is not uncommon and it results innegative consequences on quality of life. Multiple treatment options are available for men with post-prostatectomy incontinence. We reviewed the current state of available treatment options for men with post-prostatectomy incontinence. Methods: Select literature from 1970 until 2013 was reviewed. This literature along with the current state of the art of clinical practice and relevant American Urological Association guidelines were incorporated in preparing this study. Results: Treatment options for post-prostatectomy incontinence vary. They include pelvic floor muscle exercises, pharmacotherapy, urethral bulking agents, male slings, artificial urinary sphincters, and other novel and emerging procedures. Conclusions: Multiple treatment options exist for post-prostatectomy incontinence but most patients can be treated effectively. The degree and type of incontinence determine which options are appropriate and likely to be successful for patients. © 2014 American Urological Association Education and Research, Inc.
