    Abstract

    Text-Size + 

  • Placement of an artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) remains the gold standard for treatment of stress urinary incontinence after radical prostatectomy. Persistent or recurrent incontinence after AUS placement can occur. Options then include cuff revision or placement of a retrourethral transobturator sling (RTS), among other alternatives. This report describes simultaneous cuff revision and placement of a RTS for management of refractory stress urinary incontinence after radical prostatectomy. This approach obviates the need for additional procedures if one approach fails. This is especially valuable for patients averse to operative intervention and those at high risk for general anesthesia.
