Post-prostatectomy incontinence: multimodal modern-day management.

08:00 EDT 2nd April 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Post-prostatectomy incontinence: multimodal modern-day management."

As the rate of prostate cancer detection increases, so does the rate at which radical prostatectomy is performed. Post-prostatectomy incontinence (PPI) or urine leakage affects around 20% of men who undergo this procedure. Although affected individuals must be supported in maintaining hygiene with the use of urine capture devices, definitive treatment should also be offered if appropriate. A range of management options are available, from incontinence pads to artificial urinary sphincters. However, an understanding of the aetiology of the leak as well as patient factors is vital if the correct treatment option is to be selected. This article describes the potential causes of PPI and explores management options for this condition.
