abstract

  • Membranous urethral length, urethral volume, and an anatomically close relation between the levator muscle and membranous urethra on preoperative magnetic resonance imaging are independent predictors of continence recovery after radical prostatectomy. The addition of magnetic resonance imaging variables to a base model improved the predictive accuracy for continence recovery, but the predictive accuracy remains low.
