INSERTING PROSTHESIS AND SOLVING INCONTINENCE
Urinary incontinence affects millions of people worldwide. In at least 25% of cases this involuntary urine loss affects men who are over 60 years-old, who have had some kind of urogenital surgery (prostate, penis, rectum and testicles). It usually causes high levels of social embarassment, which is why most patients keep this problem from their physician and simply don’t treat it. This may have great effect on your lifestyle.
As mentioned on our Blog, treatment will depend on the urinary incontinence type and degree of severity. Patients who remain with urine loss for many months usually don’t show good response to a less invasive treatment (with medication) and may turn to surgery. Dr. Paulo Egydio is a specialist on surgical treatment of male urinary incontinence, with the artificial sphincter implant, with perfecting courses in Germany, UK and USA. It’s the most efficient surgical treatment for this condition, with high success rates and patient satisfaction.
When there’s an erectile dysfunction associated with urinary incontinence, a possibility would be implanting both sphincter and prosthesis in the same surgical procedure. Before surgery, checking for size loss or thinning is also important, for those are common in patients who are older. In that case, penile reconstruction is performed in order to restore size and girth, up to the limit of nerves and vessels, according to the Egydio Technique published concepts. Watch the video showing these concepts with an erect penis during surgery, guaranteeing the best result – fixing incontinence, restoring rigidity, lengthening and widening penis in the same procedure.
