Abstract

Post prostatectomy incontinence is a bothersome complication of radical prostatectomy. While most men recover from initial post prostatectomy incontinence, some do not. It is important to understand the natural history of post prostatectomy incontinence as well as different measures to correct the incontinence. This manuscript will review current understanding of post prostatectomy incontinence with an emphasis on the evaluation and current management of post prostatectomy incontinence.
