Background and Purpose: Urinary incontinence is a significant cause of morbidity after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). Several techniques have been developed to improve continence rates. In this study, we compared the continence rates of patients who underwent RARP with total reconstruction and without reconstruction.
