Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was conducted to determine the effect of the group on urinary continence
at 3 months post-RP, adjusting for baseline continence as a secondary outcome (Van Breukelen, 2006).
Role of bladder neck preservation in urinary continence
following radical retropubic prostatectomy.
Previous studies showed that preservation of MUL is correlated with urinary continence
after open or laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, and also demonstrated preoperative MUL as a significant predictor for recovery of urinary continence
The urinary continence
recovery rate was 19/24 (79%) at 3 months (followup).
Meaning that there is no significant difference for observing flat foot in both groups of women with urinary continence
and with stress urinary incontinence (p = 0.
Nerve sparing open radical retropubic prostatectomy-does it have an impact on urinary continence
Contribution of early intensive prolonged pelvic floor exercises on urinary continence
recovery after bladder neck-sparing radical prostatectomy: results of a prospective controlled randomized trial.
has a major impact on quality of life and has economic implications.
The precision of movement available through robotic surgery is already helping reduce the risk of sexual side effects, and the early evidence is that CO2 lasers will help us be even more accurate-especially when preserving the sensitive nerve areas necessary for sexual function and urinary continence
," said Dr.
As reported in the August issue of BJU International, men treated with RALP rather than standard prostatectomy had better recovery of urinary continence
and erectile function.
In the trial, 24% of 246 patients, younger than age 65 years, with overactive bladder who applied 1 g of oxybutynin gel once daily achieved complete urinary continence
at 12 weeks, compared with 17% of 260 age-matched placebo-treated patients.
Positive clinical findings demonstrating faster recovery of urinary continence
using localized manual cooling techniques during robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy surgery will be published in the April 2009 issue of Urology and are now available online at http://www.
