    A Randomized Study of Transcorporal versus Standard Artificial Urinary Sphincter Placement [LCID Study Number: 2016-012] The purpose of this study is to compare success rates and complications between two different ways of inserting the artificial urinary sphincter (AUS)- either in the standard fashion (ST) or transcorporally (TC) in males with stress urinary incontinence who have had radiation. Researchers will compare the need for additional AUS surgery between the two methods in subjects and evaluate the degree of incontinence and sexual function after surgery. There will be no extra visits or procedures associated with this study. Researchers will simply collect data about the participant's surgery and regular follow up visits and procedures.
