Claes H, Baert L (1993) Pelvic floor exercise versus surgery in the treatment of impotence. Br J Urology 71:52-57.
Surgery was not superior to the pelvic floor training programme either subjectively or objectively. Moreover, a significant improvement was found following the training programme; 42% were satisfied with the outcome and refused surgery. Pelvic floor exercise is a realistic alternative to surgery in patients with mild degrees of venous leakage.

Early Pelvic Floor Biofeedback Training appears to have a significant impact on the recovery of EF after RP. Urinary continence status was a good indicator of EF recovery, with continent patients having a higher chance of being potent.

Pelvic floor muscle exercises including a post-void “squeeze out” pelvic floor muscle contraction are an effective treatment for post-micturition dribble in men with erectile dysfunction.

This study suggests that pelvic floor exercises should be considered as a first-line approach for men seeking long-term resolution of their erectile dysfunction.

Pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) should be employed as a first line approach for erectile dysfunction (ED), overactive bladder (OAB), premature ejaculation (PE), chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) and post void dribbling (PVT).
