Abstract

A systematic review was conducted to critically analyze the literature on pelvic floor muscle training, biofeedback, electrical stimulation, and behavioral therapy for managing post-prostatectomy incontinence. Currently, there is a need for further study to better identify the specific components that determine the efficacy of conservative measures in the treatment of male incontinence post surgery.
