ABSTRACT
There are 3 surgical treatments for the management of post-prostatectomy incontinence, including endoscopic injection of periurethral bulking agent, perineal sling procedure, and artificial urinary sphincter (AUS). 4 patients with post-prostatectomy incontinence in our hospital underwent sling procedure using polypropylene mesh. All patients were evaluated for urodynamic result, pad count, operative time, hospital stay, complication, success, and satisfaction. Mean age was 67.8years (64-75). Mean follow-up time was 38.5months (30-51). 2 patients underwent radical prostatectomy, and other 2 patients underwent transurethral prostatectomy. Of the 4 patients, 3 (75%) were successful. In satisfaction, 2 (50%) were unsatisfied due to recurrent incontinence and erectile dysfunction. The male sling procedure using polypropylene mesh is a simple, effective treatment and an additional therapeutic option.
