ABSTRACT
PURPOSE
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) with prostatitis is a common clinical problem. There have been no previous reports of the effect of pathologic prostatitis on the improvement of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) preceded by transurethral resection of prostate (TURP). Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine the effect of pathologic prostatitis on improvement of LUTS after TURP.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
From March 1996 to December 2006, 237 patients who received TURP were divided into two groups of with mild or severe pathologic prostatitis according to the pathological results of prostate tissue evaluation, International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), quality of life (QoL), maximum flow rate (Qmax) and the development of complications were recorded before and at 3 months follow up after surgery.
RESULTS
No statistically significant differences were identified in the two groups with regard to Qmax, resection rate and complications (p>0.05). However, the IPSS and QoL were significantly different in comparisons between the two groups (p<0.05).
CONCLUSIONS
Therefore, the results of this study show that BPH accompanied by pathologic prostatitis affects the improvement of LUTS, after TURP, and treatment of prostatitis may increase patients' satisfaction after surgery.
