Patients and methodsWe used baseline data (questionnaires completed after treatment information was provided but before treatment) of 426 patients with newly diagnosed localised prostate cancer who participated (87% response rate) in a prospective, longitudinal, multicentre study. Patients’ pretreatment perceptions of differences in adverse outcomes of treatments wer...

Conclusions: There is an increased utilization of penile prosthetics in Saudi Arabia. The private sector performs the majority of penile prosthesis procedures, and most of them are of the semirigid type. The governmental sector is more likely to perform inflatable penile prosthesis and male incontinence device procedures. Male incontinence prosthetics' use is very limited in Saudi Arabia.

Background: Postoperative damage of the urethral rhabdosphincter and nerve-vascular networks is a major complication of radical prostatectomy and generally causes incontinence and/or erectile dysfunction. The human skeletal muscle-derived stem cells, which have a synchronized reconstitution capacity of muscle-nerve-blood vessel units, were applied to this damage. Methods: Cells were enzymatically extracted from the human skeletal muscle, sorted using flow cytometry as CD34+/45− (Sk-34) and CD29+/34−/45− (Sk-DN/29+) fractions, and separately cultured/expanded in appropriate conditions within 2 weeks. Uret...

The only sure way to avoid the urinary incontinence associated with radical prostatectomy is to not perform the operation. Surgeons must often develop a reluctant expertise in managing this complication with most of the care postoperatively being psychological: cajoling patients to adhere to some version of pelvic floor exercise and encouraging timed voiding and pad weaning coupled with liberal reassurances of likely resolution. For patients, unlike the episodic nature of erectile dysfunction, the suffering associated with urinary incontinence can be constant and functionally devastating.
