One-to-one sessions to teach pelvic-floor exercises to men with urinary incontinence (UI) following radical prostatectomy or transurethral resection of the prostate proved no more effective than the standard of care—brief verbal advice and an instructional leaflet for self-teaching these exercises, researchers reported in The Lancet (2011;378:328-337).

After 12 months, persistent-UI rates for men receiving one-on-one treatment were similar to those among men receiving standard care in two trials, with the intervention resulting in higher mean costs per patient but no economically important difference in quality-adjusted life years.
