Under ICS auspices, an expert panel met in July 2015 in Chicago, USA in an attempt to reach a consensus on diverse issues related to the most frequently-implanted artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) worldwide. The device is considered to be the “gold-standard” when male incontinence surgical treatment is contemplated. Despite 40 years of experience, it is still a specialised procedure with a number of challenges. In this session we present the recommendations issued from the “2015 International Continence Society (ICS) AUS Consensus Group report”, regarding indications, management and follow-up implantation or revision. During the session there will be opportunity to discuss the report with the authors.
This report was published as a special supplement of the journal Neurourology and Urodynamics in April 2016. A direct link to the supplement is available here: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/nau.v35.S2/issuetoc
