This textbook gives comprehensive coverage to the surgical management of erectile dysfunction with penile prostheses (PP) and the management of stress urinary incontinence using bladder outflow resistance created by the artificial urinary sphincter (AUS). Its intended audience are urologists who are interested in one or both topics.
The text is divided into 3 sections.
The first one deals with the history of the development of PP and the AUS, the surgical anatomy related to male erectile function and male and female urinary incontinence, operating room logistics for PP surgery, and the steps in setting up a dedicated urologic prosthetic practice.
The second part is devoted to restoring erectile function using PP. It includes chapters dealing with the appropriate evaluation of the surgical candidate, techniques of implant placement by various incisions, management of the patient postoperatively including addressing complications, and the use of PP in special circumstances including priapism, Peyronie’s Disease, fibrotic corporal bodies and the neophallus. The section concludes with a chapter on building a prosthetic urology practice, periprocedural counseling, and optimizing patient and partner satisfaction. The third segment compromises with the AUS including evaluating patient candidates, basic scrotal and perineal placement techniques, intraoperative and postoperative management of the patient and any complications which may develop.
A final chapter deals with the use of the AUS in women.

Its intended audience are urologists who are interested in the surgical management of erectile dysfunction with penile prostheses (PP) and/or the management of stress urinary incontinence using bladder outflow resistance created by the artificial urinary sphincter (AUS).
