Abstract

to compare the results of BPH-Paitents undergoing turp as earlier elective surgery with those presenting with acute urinary retention (AUR). The factors evaluated included the length of hospitlalization, the patients occupation, their duration of symptoms and reasons for not seeking treatemnt. A consecutive case, randomized study was carried out from January 2000 to May 2001, including all men admitted with bladder out flow obstruction (BOO) caused by BPH that required TURP. There is a need to raise the level of public awareness of benign prostatic hyperplasia because those who present with AUR incur excess morbidity and longer hospitalization that could otherwise be avoided through earlier treatment and elective surgery.
