摘要

Purpose: We determined whether biofeedback enhanced pelvic floor exercises begun 6 weeks after radical prostatectomy improve the early recovery of continence. Materials and Methods: We randomized 30 patients who underwent radical retropubic prostatectomy into a group that received 5 biofeedback sessions and a control group. Results: Overall 87% of patients were pad-free at 6 months with similar results in the treatment and control groups (86% versus 88%). There was no statistically significant difference in pad test results or voiding diary records in the 2 groups. Conclusions: A treatment program of biofeedback enhanced pelvic floor exercises begun 6 weeks after radical retropubic prostatectomy did not significantly affect continence in this study.
