Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the amount of resected prostatic tissue from transurethral prostatectomy and improvement of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in patient with benign prostatic hyperplasia

Material and Method: The study included a prospective analysis of 36 men with benign prostatic hyperplasia. Patients were divided in two groups according to the mean percentage of resected tissue: Group 1; less than mean percentage, Group 2; more than mean percentage. Each patient was evaluated with international prostatic symptom score (IPSS) and Quality of life (QoL) before surgery, at 1 and 3 month after surgery.

Result: Mean percentage of resected prostate tissue was 28%. IPSS was decreased by 17.72 at 1 month and 18.05 at 3 month. Patients in group 2 had more IPSS decrease than group 1 by 2.33 (P =0.02). QoL score was decreased 3.56 at 1 month and 3.47 at 3 month (p < 0.001). Patients in 2 group had more QoL decrease than 1 group by 0.45 (P = 0.03).

Conclusion: The amount of resected prostate tissue influenced slightly on deference of LUTS and QoL after TURP.
