    Objectives: To evaluate the results of synchronous dual implantation of penile (PP) and artificial urinary sphincter prosthesis (AUSP) in patients with severe erectile dysfunction (ED) and urinary incontinence (UI) after radical prostatectomy (RP).

    Methods: Between January 2006 and March 2015, patients who underwent synchronous dual implantation of PP for severe post-RP ED and AUSP for moderate to severe post-RP UI in our clinic were screened retrospectively. The erectile function and the continence status were evaluated by the questionnaires of IIEF-5 and ICIQ-SF. Results for the preoperative period and for the 1st postoperative year were revealed from patient charts. Long term results were evaluated by telephone interviews. Comorbidities, infection rates and complications were noted.

    Results: A total of 14 patients underwent synchronous dual implantation; out of which, 11 had a long enough follow up period for a sufficient long term evaluation. 3/11 had MPP and 8/11 had two-piece IPP implantation together with an AUSP. All of the implantations were carried out through an upper transverse scrotal incision. Mean follow up time was 61.3 ± 20 months. In 1 patient who had received adjuvant radiotherapy, both of the devices were removed due to infection and cuff erosion. Mean daily usage of pads diminished from 4 to 1 while ICIQ-SF score decreased from 19 to 2 and IIEF-5 score increased from 3 to 23.

    Conclusion: Synchronous implantation of PP and AUSP is a safe and effective treatment option for patients with severe ED and moderate to severe UI after RP.

    Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and end-stage erectile dysfunction (ED) after radical prostatectomy (RP) can decrease a patient's quality of life (QoL). We describe a surgical technique involving scrotal incision for simultaneous dual implantation of an artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) and an inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP). Patients with moderate to severe SUI (>3 pads per day) and end-stage ED following RP were selected for dual implantation. Read More

    Objective: To compare simultaneous and 2-stage surgical implantation of an artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) and penile prosthesis (PP) for patients with severe urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction after prostatectomy.

    Methods: The data from 23 patients were reviewed, 15 (group 1) underwent simultaneous implantation and 8 (group 2) underwent 2-stage surgery. The operative time, complications, postoperative pain, incidence of pre- and postoperative urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction rating (International Consultation on Incontinence questionnaire, Incontinence Quality of Life, International Index of Erectile Function, and Erectile Dysfunction Inventory of Treatment Satisfaction), and patient satisfaction were evaluated.

    Introduction: The treatment of postradical prostatectomy erectile dysfunction (post-RP-ED) and stress urinary incontinence (post-RP-SUI) may require the combined implantation of a penile prosthesis and incontinence surgery. However, there is a lack of consensus regarding which incontinence surgery should be associated with a penile implant.

    Aims: To evaluate the combined implantation of a penile prosthesis and the adjustable continence therapy ProACT in patients with post-RP-ED and post-RP-SUI. Read More

    Purpose: Little data exist on the outcome of combined inflatable penile prosthesis and artificial urinary sphincter insertion for erectile dysfunction and stress urinary incontinence. We assessed patient outcomes for combined vs single device implantation at a single institution.

    Materials And Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the records of all patients who underwent inflatable penile prosthesis and artificial urinary sphincter insertion at our hospital from January 2000 to December 2011. Read More
