Since its introduction in 1973, the artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) has become widely accepted therapy, particularly for male incontinence. In this article, the authors review their experience with more than 600 artificial urinary sphincter (AUS) devices and discuss practical points concerning surgery and revisions. Their routine surgical approach as a means of reporting on technical lessons learned is also described.
