Aims & Objectives

Advanced
90 minutes
Male Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) / Voiding Dysfunction
Clinical
Male incontinence Radical Prostatectomy Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy
Urologists and Physiotherapists exposed to patients undergoing radical prostatectomy (whichever technique).

Despite surgical improvement, radical prostatectomy isn´t free of complications, urinary incontinence remaining the most important. When salvage radiotherapy is applied, an additional risk factor is added. Finally, some patients develop a difficult situation: stenosis of anastomosis.
To give a comprehensive management, one should adapt to the resources available or provide a reasonable referral. Ideally this should be done in a team-based approach.

The objectives are:

  1. To explain surgical techniques that decrease the risk of incontinence and diagnostic methods and treatment for incontinence.
  2. To explain the role of pre and post behavioural therapy to improve the functional outcome
