Efficacy of Extracorporeal Biofeedback Device for Post-prostatectomy Incontinence


Brief description of study

To evaluate the efficacy of postoperative pelvic floor muscle training using personalized extracorporeal biofeedback device among patients with post-prostatectomy incontinence

Detailed Study Description

- Post prostatectomy urinary incontinence (PPI) was common complication after radical prostatectomy among prostate cancer patients. - The prevalence of post-prostatectomy urinary incontinence was reported at 87%. - The pelvic floor muscle therapy (PFMT) using Kegel exercise was first methods to prevent PPI after prostatectomy. - However, there was no standardized protocol of the PFMT and it was necessary of biofeedback to PFMT. - Therefore, we hypothesis the efficacy of personalized device of PFMT with biofeedback among patients who underwent radical prostatectomy - In this study, we evaluate the efficacy of postoperative pelvic floor muscle training using personalized extracorporeal biofeedback device among patients with post-prostatectomy incontinence.
