Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation for Orthotopic Diversion
The role of pelvic floor physical therapy in treating the neobladder population and the value provided with the patient’s return to quality of life postoperatively from a bladder, bowel, and sexual functioning perspective are discussed.
An ideal e‐health system for pelvic floor muscle training adherence: Systematic review
Nowadays, Pelvic Floor Muscle Training (PFMT) is a first line, level 1 evidence‐based treatment for urinary incontinence (UI), but adherence to PFMT is often problematic. Today, there are several
Post-prostatectomy Incontinence and Rehabilitation: Timing, Methods, and Results
Urinary incontinence is a common and feared complication of radical prostatectomy that has a relevant impact on the quality of life and serious psychosocial effects.
The Effects of Pelvic Floor Muscle Training and Behavioral Training on Sexual Dysfunction, Incontinence, Physical Activity Level and Quality of Life in the Elderly
The results of this study suggest that pelvic floor muscle training could be beneficial if added to rehabilitation programs for the elderly to obtain less sexual dysfunction and, incontinence, and betterincontinence-related quality of life and physical activity levels.
A pilot randomized trial of conventional versus advanced pelvic floor exercises to treat urinary incontinence after radical prostatectomy: a study protocol
This study will compare an advanced pelvic floor exercise training program that includes Pfilates and Hypopressives, to a conventional pelvic floor exercises regimen for the treatment of post-radical prostatectomy urinary incontinence to provide the foundation of data for future, large-scale trials to definitively describe the effect.
Management of erectile dysfunction and LUTS/incontinence: the two most common, long-term side effects of prostate cancer treatment.
The two major long-term concerns associated with different options for the management of prostate cancer, (including surgery, radiotherapy, brachytherapy, cryotherapy, HIFU, etc.) include

New evidence suggests that men with erectile dysfunction may benefit from the same pelvic floor exercises as men with urinary incontinence, which include 'the knack', urge suppression, fluid advice and a post-void contraction for post-micturition dribble.
Pelvic floor exercise versus surgery in the treatment of impotence.
Pelvic floor exercise is a realistic alternative to surgery in patients with mild degrees of venous leakage and surgery was not superior to the pelvic floor training programme either subjectively or objectively.
Pelvic floor exercises for treating post-micturition dribble in men with erectile dysfunction: a randomized controlled trial.
Pelvic floor muscle exercises including a post-void "squeeze out" pelvic floor muscle contraction are an effective treatment for post-micturition dribble in men with erectile dysfunction.
Impact of early pelvic floor rehabilitation after transurethral resection of the prostate

A new treatment for premature ejaculation: the rehabilitation of the pelvic floor.
Pelvic floor rehabilitation is easy to perform, has no side effects, and can be included among the therapuetic options for patients with premature ejaculation.
The role of pelvic floor exercises on post-prostatectomy incontinence.
PFE therapy instituted prior to radical prostatectomy aids in the earlier achievement of urinary incontinence, however, PFE has limited benefit in patients with severe urinaryincontinence 16 weeks after surgery.
