Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of sexual dysfunction in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). METHODS: During the last 6 months 88 patients (mean age 65 years, range 55-78) suffering from BPH, without other chronic disease, were studied. RESULTS: Andrological evaluation enabled us to find erectile dysfunction in 52% of patients, ejaculation problems in 41% and decrease of libido in 54%. CONCLUSION: Due to the great impact of these disturbances in patients' quality of life, we believe that clinical and therapeutic approach in BPH patients should be global, with both urological and andrological assessment.
