Innovation in the Treatment of Male Urinary Incontinence – Summary:

Culley C. Carson III, MD, Emeritus Rhodes Distinguished Professor in the Department of Urology at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, discusses innovations in the treatment of male urinary incontinence. He outlines different treatments and their various pros and cons, including some cutting-edge technology that is not yet available in the US. He also goes over innovations, which still need to be made in order to further improve certain technologies like the artificial urinary sphincter. He highlights how important it is to come up with a more cost-effective model because, currently, artificial urinary sphincters are extremely expensive. There are also several significant causes of revision surgery for artificial urinary sphincters, demonstrating the need for further innovation. Dr. Carson also emphasizes the importance of customizing the pumps to individual patients, and goes over current research intended to improve patient outcomes.
