|Title:||Readjustable transobturator sling: A novel sling procedure for male urinary incontinence|
|Abstract:||Post-prostatectomy incontinence remains a significant problem for both patients and urologists. We report a case and the surgical technique of successful sling in the treatment of post-prostatectomy urinary incontinence. Sling surgery was performed on a 69-year-old male patient with severe urinary incontinence ( 6 pads/day) following radical prostatectomy. The procedure was conducted through the transobturator approach using a sling with a silicone foam pad to protect the urethra. At the 7-month follow-up the patient is using only 1 pad/ day. We consider this operation an alternative to artificial urinary sphincter in cases of male sphincter incontinence. Copyright (C) 2004 S. Karger AG, Basel.|
