OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the results of synchronous dual implantation of penile (PP) and artificial urinary sphincter prosthesis (AUSP) in patients with severe erectile dysfunction (ED) and urinary incontinence (UI) after radical prostatectomy (RP).

METHODS: Between January 2006 and March 2015, patients who underwent synchronous dual implantation of PP for severe post-RP ED and AUSP for moderate to severe post-RP UI in our clinic were screened retrospectively. The erectile function and the continence status were evaluated by the questionnaires of IIEF-5 and ICIQ-SF. Results for the preoperative period and for the 1st postoperative year were revealed from patient charts. Long term results were evaluated by telephone interviews. Comorbidities, infection rates and complications were noted.

RESULTS: A total of 14 patients underwent synchronous dual implantation; out of which, 11 had a long enough follow up period for a sufficient long term evaluation. 3/11 had MPP and 8/11 had two-piece IPP implantation together with an AUSP. All of the implantations were carried out through an upper transverse scrotal incision. Mean follow up time was 61.3 ± 20 months. In 1 patient who had received adjuvant radiotherapy, both of the devices were removed due to infection and cuff erosion. Mean daily usage of pads diminished from 4 to 1 while ICIQ-SF score decreased from 19 to 2 and IIEF-5 score increased from 3 to 23.

CONCLUSION: Synchronous implantation of PP and AUSP is a safe and effective treatment option for patients with severe ED and moderate to severe UI after RP.
