Abstract

To elucidate the long-term reliability of prostatectomy, we evaluated 92 benign prostatic hyperplasia patients who had been submitted to either transurethral or open surgery at the 5-year follow-up. Ninety-five percent of the patients were still nonobstructed and subjectively satisfied of their urinary status. Postoperative mortality was presumably not related to the previous operation. Until now, nonsurgical procedures did not guarantee the results achieved by surgical treatment and should thus be reserved for patients at high operative risk or refusing surgery.
