Artificial sphincter

An artificial sphincter is an implanted system that has been designed to regulate urine flow manually. For men who have urinary incontinence that has not been regulated by more conservative approaches, this system is an alternative. This also includes men who have undergone a radical prostatectomy (removal of the prostate gland) or have undergone prostate cancer radiation therapy.
