This article reviews current prostatectomy techniques and then techniques for fluoroscopic voiding cystourethrography (VCUG) evaluation of the prostate and bladder after prostatectomy. Both normal post-prostatectomy appearances and complications will be reviewed.
VCUG is a useful evaluation for both common and uncommon post-prostatectomy complications and appropriate interpretation of the VCUG complications is important to aid the urologist’s clinical decision making.
