Artificial urinary sphincter

G Pic, J E Terrier, B Ozenne, N Morel-Journel, P Paparel, A Ruffion
INTRODUCTION: Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a degradation of the quality of life factor in the consequences of radical prostatectomy. Artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) is the standard treatment. Screening and preoperative treatment of anastomotic strictures (AS) is an essential step for the success of the intervention. The objective of the study was to assess the impact of AS on the results of AUA. METHODS: We retrospectively studied 147 AUS settlements from 2005 to 2013 in the urology department of the Centre Hospitalier Lyon by three operators...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate whether filling phase urodynamic parameters can predict the success of the artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) in treating post-prostatectomy incontinence (PPI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed the pre-AUS urodynamics of 99 patients with PPI at two tertiary referral centers. We documented the peak DO pressure (Pdet ), capacity, and compliance (C). We defined success as patient-reported continence or only using one safety pad. Patients' perception of improvement was assessed using the PGI-I score...

OBJECTIVE: To determine if oral corticosteroid use is associated with an increased risk of AUS related reoperation. METHODS: Administrative data from Ontario was used to conduct a retrospective cohort study. Men >65 years of age who underwent implantation of an AUS between 2002 and 2013 were included. Prescriptions for oral corticosteroids were identified and men were considered exposed from the date the prescription was dispensed to 180 days after the expected end of the prescription...

Urinary incontinence, often related to sphincter damage, is found in male patients, leading to a miserable quality of life and to huge costs for the healthcare system. The most effective surgical solution currently considered for men is the artificial urinary sphincter that exerts a pressure field on the urethra, occluding the duct. The evaluation of this device is currently based on clinical and surgical competences. The artificial sphincter design and mechanical action can be investigated by a biomechanical model of the urethra under occlusion, evaluating the interaction between tissues and prosthesis...

PURPOSE: The AMS 800(TM) artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) remains the gold standard for the surgical management of male stress urinary incontinence. We reviewed AUS device survival following primary implantation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective data was collected from the AMS 800(TM) patient information form (PIF) database. Since 1972, 77,512 PIFs for primary AUS implantation have been completed in the United States. Following exclusion of procedures performed in children and females, and those labeled with an unknown surgical technique, 27,096 AUS cases were included in the analysis...

INTRODUCTION: We analysed the impact of predefined risk factors: age, diabetes, history of pelvic irradiation, prior surgery for stress urinary incontinence (SUI), prior urethral stricture, additional procedure during SUI surgery, duration of incontinence, ASA-classification and cause for incontinence on failure and complications in male SUI surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively identified 506 patients with an artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) and 513 patients with a male sling (MS) in a multicenter cohort study...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of prior radiation therapy on artificial urinary sphincter. METHODS: Group 1 was comprised of 63 men who underwent prior radical prostatectomy, and Group 2 was comprised of 31 men who received prior radiation therapy with or without prior radical prostatectomy. Social incontinence was defined as requiring to use > 1 pad per day and/or catheter-dependent at the time of last follow-up. RESULTS: The median age at artificial urinary sphincter placement was 71 years (interquartile range, 55-74 years)...

AIM: Over the past few years, we have been doing an increasing number of revisions for artificial urinary sphincters (AUS) at our center. The study aims to investigate reason for this change in our practice. METHODS: Demographics and surgical outcomes of patients who received AUS in 2003-2014 at our center were retrospectively evaluated, and patients were contacted to check the current status of their AUS. The outcomes of the study were: percentage of revisions and explanation, survival, and the risk factors associated with these events...

INTRODUCTION: Frequently encountered morbidities after prostatectomy include stress urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction. Patients with severe disease may undergo placement of both a penile prosthesis (PP) and an artificial urethral sphincter (AUS). AIM: We hypothesized that concomitant PP may promote AUS cuff erosion by impaired corporal blood flow and/or direct pressure on the cuff. The aim of this study was to compare the rate of AUS cuff erosion in patients with and without a PP...

INTRODUCTION: Reservoir placement during implantation of prosthetic urology devices has been problematic throughout the history of the surgical treatment of erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence. We thought it would be interesting to review the history of reservoir placement leading up to current surgical techniques. AIM: To provide an overview of the past and present techniques for reservoir placement and discuss the evolutionary process leading to safe and effective placement of prosthetic reservoirs...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the association between decreased serum testosterone levels and AUS cuff erosion. METHODS: We evaluated serum testosterone levels in 53 consecutive patients. Low testosterone was defined as <280 ng/dl and found in 30/53 patients (56.6%). Chi-square and Student's t tests, Kaplan-Meier analysis, binary logistic regression and Cox regression analysis were used to determine statistical significance. RESULTS: Nearly all men with AUS cuff erosions had low serum testosterone (18/20, 90...

The artificial urinary sphincter (AUS), which has evolved over many years, has become a safe and reliable treatment for stress urinary incontinence and is currently the gold standard. After 4 decades of existence, there is substantial experience with the AUS. Today AUS is most commonly placed for postprostatectomy stress urinary incontinence. Only a small proportion of urologists routinely place AUS. In a survey in 2005, only 4% of urologists were considered high-volume AUS implanters, performing >20 per year...

PURPOSE: Male stress urinary incontinence (SUI) can significantly diminish quality of life and lead to embarrassment and social withdrawal. Surgical therapies, such as male urethral slings and artificial urinary sphincters (AUS), are considered effective and safe treatments for male SUI. Our objective is to evaluate 30-day complications in patients undergoing male slings and AUS placement from a national multicenter database. METHODS: Data from the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality of Improvement Program for 2008-2013 were used to identify patients who underwent male slings and AUS implantation...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of diabetes and obesity on artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) outcomes. METHODS: From 1987-2011, men with available diabetes and body mass index (BMI) information (568 of 954) undergoing primary AUS placement at our institution were evaluated. The incidence of all-cause re-intervention, mechanical failure, atrophy, and erosion/infection were assessed using the Kaplan-Meier method. Multivariable analyses evaluated the association between clinical characteristics and AUS outcomes...
