Dan Kirges PT Pelvic PT distance journal club Jan 6,2016
Purpose: Examine the effectiveness of conservative management of post-prostatectomy incontinence. Multiple intervention options were investigated including pelvic floor muscle training with or without biofeedback, e-stim, extra-corporeal magnetic innervation, compression clamps and lifestyle changes.
Aim: Answer the question “Does conservative management improve urinary incontinence post-prostatectomy within the first 12 months compared to time alone.”
Our journal club will only focus on post-prostatectomy and not post-TURP at this time. Recording of journal club discussion included input from the Male Study group of the pelvic PT distance journal club consensus document. Recording can be accessed here. https://fccdl.in/w9RareCWK
