The Changing Face of Artificial Urinary Sphincter Use in France The Future is Female

Abstract : Analyzing concurrently data from the manufacturer and from a national comprehensive administrative claim database (PMSI)we found that, overall, the total number of AUS implanted (male+female) increased from 2012 to 2017 (+8.8%). This growth was driven by a strong increase in the number of female implants from 2015 to 2017 (+28.9%). Meanwhile, the number of AUS implanted in male patients remained roughly stable and the total number of anti-incontinence surgery in men (slings+AUS) decreased steadily over the period studied.
