Advances in Prosthetic Urology

Description

Successful surgical treatment of erectile dysfunction and male incontinence can be rewarding for both the patient and the surgeon. Prosthetic urology has seen many advances over the past 70 years, resulting from improvements in implant design and surgical method: from placing a rib outside the tunica albuginea to a three-piece inflatable device with cylinders inside the corpora cavernosa. Most recent advances include antibiotic-coated prostheses, improved pump design, innovative new surgical techniques, and several new slings for surgical treatment of male urinary incontinence. Today’s implants and methods allow for increasingly higher levels of patient satisfaction, better mechanical reliability, and improved outcomes.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to improve patient outcomes in the fields of surgical treatment of erectile dysfunction and male incontinence. We are particularly interested in articles that investigate recent improvements in diagnosis of different types and levels of severity in male incontinence, prosthetic device design changes, and new devices in male incontinence. In addition, we are interested in new surgical techniques, associated procedures, comparison studies, enhanced patient teaching methods, and other ways to improve patient’s satisfaction and outcomes in the field of prosthetic urology. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Tricks, tips, and pearls of inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) placement, both penoscrotal and infrapubic
  • Secondary procedures with IPP placement
  • Improving outcomes in male stress urinary incontinence (SUI) procedures: sling and artificial urinary sphincter (AUS)
  • New and improved surgical techniques for AUS and IPP placement
  • Evaluating all the new devices (worldwide) for male incontinence
  • Comparison of the sling and AUS and when to use one device over the other
  • Postoperative rehabilitation of IPP patients
  • Recent advances in difficult Peyronies/corporal fibrosis cases
