We prospectively evaluated changes in morphology and dynamics of the male pelvic floor on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) associated with retrourethral transobturator sling (RTS) placement. Twenty-six men with post-prostatectomy incontinence consecutively underwent functional cine-MRI before and 12 months after RTS. The membranous urethra length (MUL) and severity of periurethral/urethral fibrosis were assessed on static MRI. A lowering of the posterior bladder wall (BPW), the bladder neck (BN… CONTINUE READING
