Outcomes of Readjustable Male Sling (REMEEX System) for Post Prostatectomy Urinary Incontinence

 INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES:

The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the experience of the readjustable male sling (RMS) in men with post-prostatectomy urinary incontinence from two unrelated centers.

METHODS:

From Jan 2007 to Jan 2013, a total of 61 men with urinary incontinence following radical prostatectomy were treated with RMS in two centers. Success was defined as using 1 or less pad/day and using 2 or more pads/day was considered a failure. Conversion to other surgery such as artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) implantation was also defined as failure.

CONCLUSION:

Readjustable male sling using the REMEEX system showed similar success rates in two unrelated centers. Readjustable male sling is a good treatment option for men with mild stress urinary incontinence following radical prostatectomy.
