Abstract

Male stress urinary incontinence, which has radical prostatectomy as the main aetiology, affects about 39% of the adult male population and is one of the complications of radical prostatectomy with the greatest impact on the quality of life of patients. There are a wide range of treatments for stress urinary incontinence available to the urologist, ranging from conservative treatments to surgical treatments, from minimally invasive procedures to the implant of artificial sphincter prosthesis. The aim of this work is to define the state-of-the-art of surgical treatments for male stress urinary incontinence, analyzing the most recent studies in the literature and evaluating the available scientific evidence.
