dc.description.abstractThe increasing incidence of prostate cancer (PC) with advancing age coupled with longer life expectancy is resulting in a growing number of older men being newly diagnosed disease. Many of these men may be fit enough and wish to consider surgical treatment for PC, but concerns persist over functional outcomes. The aim of this study is to assess continence outcomes by age in a single-surgeon series of robot-assisted radical prostatectomies (RARP). Conclusions: Continence outcomes among older men undergoing RARP were worse compared to younger men, but still appear acceptable in the context of treating higher-risk PC. These results will be useful in counselling older patients with PC when deciding on treatment modality.en_US
