Men who are treated for prostate cancer often develop urinary leakage (incontinence). A clinical trial led by Deborah E. Citrin, M.D., Senior Investigator in the Radiation Oncology Branch, is studying a device that uses electrical impulses to stimulate pelvic floor muscles and surrounding tissues that may help.

The trial will take place at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and there is no cost for participation.
