Excerpt

Radical prostatectomy (RP) aims to eradicate prostate cancer with preserving continence, and whenever possible, potency [1]. The urinary incontinence (UI) is one of the most potential side effects of RP, which can influence quality of life [2]. Postoperative UI can be affected by several patient-associated parameters, such as age, preexisting lower urinary tract symptoms, body mass index, and functional bladder changes [3]. …
