Artificial urinary sphincter implantation

Dr Daniel Moon and his colleague(s) demonstrate the surgical placement of an artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) implantation in an Egyptian male patient (65 years old), with a medical history of a radical prostatectomy and subsequent urodynamic proven stress urinary incontinence.

AUS implantation remains the 'gold standard' for management of moderate-to-severe stress urinary incontinence in both irradiated and non-irradiated patients after prostate cancer treatment.
