Artificial urinary sphincter placement in compromised urethras and survival: A comparison of virgin, radiated and reoperative cases


Purpose Although long-term outcomes after initial placement of artificial urinary sphincters are established, limited data exist comparing sphincter survival in patients with compromised urethras (prior radiation, artificial urinary sphincter placement or urethroplasty). We evaluated artificial urinary sphincter failure in patients with compromised and noncompromised urethras.
