Abstract

The prostatic UroLume Wallstent* was positioned in 30 poor operative risk patients with bladder outlet obstruction due to benign prostatic hyperplasia. Preoperatively, 12 patients (40%) could still void spontaneously (group 1), while 18 (60%) had an indwelling catheter (group 2). Preoperative and postoperative assessment included scoring of subjective symptoms, physical examination, uroflowmetry with maximum flow nomogram, transrectal ultrasonography of the prostate, determination of residual urine volume and cystourethroscopy. All but 1 patient could void spontaneously after insertion of the stent. In group 1 preoperative and 1-year followup mean (plus or minus standard error) peak flow rates were 8.0 ± 0.7 ml. per second and 15.8 ± 1.8 ml. per second, respectively (p
