Abstract

Post-prostatectomy incontinence (PPI) is a growing clinical area requiring appropriate assessment and treatment. While the incidence of incontinence in men has reduced over recent years, it remains one of the more troublesome events that can occur following prostate surgery. Continence physiotherapists and continence nurse specialists play an important role both preoperatively and postoperatively in the recovery of continence and erectile function for these men. This paper brings together some current research and clinical experience for use by all continence advisors.
