Abstract

Presently hyperthermia in urology is mainly used in the treatment of bladder and prostatic cancer. Additionally local hyperthermia is in use in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and chronic abacterial prostatitis. Several groups are now investigating the effect of local hyperthermia on the bladder wall as well as on the prostate. Equipment is to hand which makes clinical testing possible.
