Abstract

In this report we describe the case of a 65-year-old diabetic patient who developed hydronephrosis and irreversible end-stage renal disease nine years after the placement of an AMS 800™ artificial urinary sphincter. This was due to non-compliance with the voiding regime and lack of follow-up after the placement of the urinary sphincter.
