Global Perspectives in Urology Forum
Topic: Male Incontinence and the Use of Prosthetics To Enhance Urinary Control
Wednesday, May 18, 2011
1 – 2:30 p.m.

Global Perspectives in Urology Forum

Incontinence and the Use of Prosthetics to Enhance Urinary Control
Moderator: Sender Herschorn, MD

While male stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is far less prevalent than female SUI, urologists are the sole providers of surgical treatment in this area. With the increasing number of radical prostatectomy procedures and other forms of treatment performed worldwide for prostate cancer the number of men requiring surgical treatment for SUI is rising. The artificial urinary sphincter has been the mainstay of treatment for male SUI for decades. The male prosthetic sling was re-introduced about 12 years ago to provide a simpler and less expensive alternative. Since then many different sling designs fashioned from different materials have been reported. There have also been alternative devices such as inflatable balloons and other prosthetic sphincters introduced. Similar to the management of female SUI there are controversies in the basic workup, choice of technique and device, and in the management of complications. A key issue is the lack of high level evidence for determining which patients are candidates for which prosthesis. This session will illustrate these issues and controversies in the surgical management of male SUI from various parts of the world with case presentations and discussion.

Learning Objectives: After attending this program, participants should be able to:

  • review the basic workup of SUI
  • describe the various prosthetic devices and their indications for surgical management
  • identify effective management strategies for common complications and different approaches used in various parts of the world
