To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of implantation of artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) for the treatment of male patients with incontinence.
During November 2013 to November 2017, 5 male patients (mean age 75.4 years) with urinary incontinence secondary to prostatectomy incontinence treated with AUS were followed up. The usage of pad and the improvement of relevant score before and after operation were compared.
All AUS devices were successfully activated and manipulated. After implantation, 4 cases got social continence, and 1 case were totally dry. Complications occurred in 2 cases during an average follow-up of 28.4 months.
The implantation of AUS is an effective, safe and minimally invasive procedure for male patients with incontinence.
