Abstract

Objective To review the clinical outcomes of "ideal" vs "nonideal" postprostatectomy stress urinary incontinence (PPI) patients who underwent male sling placement. Methods The medical records of 95 consecutive patients with PPI who underwent male sling insertion (AdVance male sling, American Medical Systems, Minnetonka, MN) were reviewed. Patients were divided into "ideal" vs "nonideal" cohorts. The ideal group consisted of patients with mild to moderate incontinence (<4 pads/day or <300 g daily pad weight), ability to volitionally contract the external urinary sphincter, no history of pelvic radiation or cryotherapy, no history of previous anti-incontinence surgical procedures, the ability to generate a volitional detrusor contraction when voiding, and a postvoid residual urine volume <100 mL. Patients in the nonideal group did not satisfy all these criteria. Results Significant reductions in daily pad usage and weight were noted in both cohorts. In the ideal patient group, 66 of 72 patients (92%) would undergo the procedure again. Conversely, only 7 of 23 nonideal men (30%) would undergo the procedure again. Conclusion Preoperative patient selection can influence favorable outcomes after the treatment of PPI with AdVance male slings. Attention to ideal vs nonideal patient characteristics should be used when counseling men considering male sling surgery.
