In 2005, Robert Adrianne devised a surgical approach that addresses climacturia, which can be done as an adjunctive procedure to IPP placement. This prospective multicenter, multinational, investigational, pilot study reports on the results of this strategy.
This study examined the functional and subjective outcomes in patients who had concomitant length and girth restoration with the multiple-slit technique (MUST.)
