Diseases Complicating Management of Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy

  • Lester Persky


Many considerations affect the choice of time for surgery and the operative approach in benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). The preoperative evaluation must consider the surgeon’s preference and expertise, as well as the patient’s physical, physiological, emotional, and psychological makeup. Medical ailments affect the selection of the anesthesia as well as of the operation. These factors modify the final outcome as much as the intraoperative events.
