OBJECTIVES: • To review the urological literature regarding the management of Post-Prostatectomy Incontinence (PPUI).
METHODS: • A Pubmed literature search was performed.
RESULTS: • The definition of Post-Prostatectomy Incontinence varied widely. • The artificial urinary sphincter has proven efficacy and durability. • Newer devices, in particular the AdVance sling, lack quality studies despite its apparent popularity.
CONCLUSION: • Currently there is insufficient evidence to determine whether newer devices approach the efficacy and durability of the artificial urinary sphincter.
