Aims: The objective of the study was to analyze short-term outcomes and safety profile of the newly designed artificial urinary sphincters (AUSs) VICTO® and VICTOplus®. Methods: Data from the implant of VICTO® or VICTOplus® AUSs on a series of consecutive male patients with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) following radical prostatectomy (RP) were retrospectively collected in 3 tertiary referral centers between May 2017 and December 2019. Patients were affected by moderate-severe genuine SUI (200-400 or >400 g urine leakage in 24-h pad test) refractory to conservative treatment. Outcomes were evaluated through the 24-h pad test and the International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire-Urinary Incontinence Short Form (ICIQ-UI-SF). Follow-up was scheduled after 3, 6, and 12 months and then when clinically needed. Nonparametric tests were applied in subgroup analyses. Results: Seventeen patients were enrolled: 8 were implanted with the VICTO® device and 9 with VICTOplus®. The median age at surgery was 69 (interquartile range (IQR) 60-75) years. The median follow-up was 15 (IQR 12-18) months. At 12 months, the dry rate was 76.4% and the social continence rate was 94%. The postoperative complication rate was 17.6%. All complications were classified as Clavien-Dindo I. No difference in terms of outcomes was observed between the VICTO® and the VICTOplus® subgroups. Conclusions: Preliminary outcomes of the VICTO® and VICTOplus® implantation are satisfactory. These devices may represent a safe and realistic solution for patients with moderate-severe SUI following RP.

Abstract

Aims: The objective of the study was to analyze short-term outcomes and safety profile of the newly designed artificial urinary sphincters (AUSs) VICTO® and VICTOplus®. Methods: Data from the implant of VICTO® or VICTOplus® AUSs on a series of consecutive male patients with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) following radical prostatectomy (RP) were retrospectively collected in 3 tertiary referral centers between May 2017 and December 2019. Patients were affected by moderate-severe genuine SUI (200-400 or >400 g urine leakage in 24-h pad test) refractory to conservative treatment. Outcomes were evaluated through the 24-h pad test and the International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire-Urinary Incontinence Short Form (ICIQ-UI-SF). Follow-up was scheduled after 3, 6, and 12 months and then when clinically needed. Nonparametric tests were applied in subgroup analyses. Results: Seventeen patients were enrolled: 8 were implanted with the VICTO® device and 9 with VICTOplus®. The median age at surgery was 69 (interquartile range (IQR) 60-75) years. The median follow-up was 15 (IQR 12-18) months. At 12 months, the dry rate was 76.4% and the social continence rate was 94%. The postoperative complication rate was 17.6%. All complications were classified as Clavien-Dindo I. No difference in terms of outcomes was observed between the VICTO® and the VICTOplus® subgroups. Conclusions: Preliminary outcomes of the VICTO® and VICTOplus® implantation are satisfactory. These devices may represent a safe and realistic solution for patients with moderate-severe SUI following RP.
