Catheters and incontinence after radical prostatectomy: preparing (but not scaring) men

Catheters and incontinence after radical prostatectomy: preparing (but not scaring) men
Catheters and incontinence after radical prostatectomy: preparing (but not scaring) men
Every year about 6000 men in the UK undergo radical prostatectomy (RP) for treatment of prostate cancer. Despite surgical advances, RP continues to be associated with significant side-effects including urinary incontinence (UI). Immediately following removal of the urinary catheter, leakage can be sudden, heavy and persistent requiring immediate recourse to continence products.

Abstract

Every year about 6000 men in the UK undergo radical prostatectomy (RP) for treatment of prostate cancer. Despite surgical advances, RP continues to be associated with significant side-effects including urinary incontinence (UI). Immediately following removal of the urinary catheter, leakage can be sudden, heavy and persistent requiring immediate recourse to continence products.
