( Volume 2 Issue 3,March 2016 ) OPEN ACCESS

Felipe Monnerat Lott, Luciano Alves Favorito


Malignant neoplasm of the prostate is a highly prevalent ailment and its surgical treatment, even with minimally invasive techniques, still produces high rates of various side effects, such as urinary incontinence. This article presents a systematic review of the literature on the occurrence of urinary incontinence after robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy, seeking to define the main predictors and factors described as responsible for incontinence and their relevance. The review covers the records obtained from the Pubmed, Cochrane, Lilacs and Embase databases, published in the past 10 years, using as search terms robotic prostatectomy, urinary continence, trifecta, pentafecta and functional results. All the techniques of prior anatomic reconstruction are beneficial for early return of urinary continence.
