Urinary incontinence is a major concern following radical prostatectomy. The etiology is multifactorial involving intrinsic sphincter deficiency and/or detrusor hyperactivity and/or decreased bladder compliance. Recent studies employing functional imaging methodology nicely demonstrated the reference regions of the micturition circuit. Based on these landmarks this work complements this field of research by studying patients with bladder dysfunction. Our aim was to evaluate, whether iatrogenic… CONTINUE READING
