sometimes called Cunningham clamps, are external devices
used to control incontinence in men following prostate
cancer treatment. The penile clamp consists of a v-shaped
casing with a foam cushion that goes over the penis.
When the clamp is closed the urinary flow is stopped.
Only patients that can adjust them properly and adhere
to a strict schedule of removal every 2 to 3 hours to
empty the bladder should use penile clamps. If not used
properly, they can cause penile and urethral tissue
damage, penile edema, pain, and obstruction.
