Summary by Pedro Blasco
In the “Male 1” session, four papers regarding male incontinence and LUTS were properly presented. There were two main themes: pelvic floor and alpha blocker therapy.
Two papers were presented on the relationship of pelvic floor in males: “Efficacy of pelvic floor exercises prior to radical prostatectomy in terms of continence and quality of life” was a really very interesting paper, analysing results of transperineal ultrasound in males with incontinence after radical prostatectomy, without doubt, one of the lines to follow in the future.
Regarding alpha blocker therapy a Japanese metanalysis about efficacy of tamsulosine and intermittent therapy with alpha blockers completed the session.
