Resumen

GARCIA MATRES, María Justa et al. Paraurethral adjustable continence therapy device (Pro-ACT) in the treatment of urinary incontinence after prostatic surgery. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2009, vol.62, n.10, pp.871-881. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objectives: Prostate cancer early detection campaigns have led to the diagnosis of a greater number of patients with organ-confined disease candidates for intention-to-cure treatment. Radical prostatectomy is one of these treatments; despite the technical advances with the development of laparoscopic or robotic operations it still has urine incontinence as a side effect affecting patient's quality of life. Methods/Results: Based on the experience in the Urology Department at Hospital La Paz we describe the technique and our results, comparing with a bibliographic review of other techniques used for the treatment of urinary incontinence after radical prostatectomy from the Medline database. Conclusions: The insertion of the paraurethral ProACTTM is the treatment of choice for mild-moderate incontinence after radical prostatectomy in our environment due to its high success rate and low morbidity, technical easiness, and adequate cost and resources requirements.

Palabras clave : Paraurethral adjustable continence therapy device; Urinary incontinence; Prostate cancer.
