Abstract

We report a case of total urinary incontinence secondary to sphincter destruction after prostate cryotherapy for recurrent prostatic carcinoma in a 64-year-old man. Periurethral collagen injection was impossible due to inadequate penetration of the injection needle, because of severe scarring and fibrotic changes of the urethra after cryotherapy.
