By color-Doppler ultrasound it's possible to visualize urine flow jet from ureter into the bladder. Aim of the study was to evaluate of ureteral jet in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia before, during and after with one or two drugs medical therapy. Thirteen patients, aged 51-63 years, were studied; they were not affected by metabolic, hepatic, renal diseases and by prostate inflammation. Eco color Doppler p.w. (Toshiba SSA 270A) with a convex probe of 3.5 MHz was here used. A transabdominal ultrasound study was performed, prostate volume measured and ureteral jet visualized before and along treatment (at six months interval) with Finasteride and at the end of treatment. Successively, in four patients, with relapse of prostatic symptomatology, a transabdominal ultrasound study was performed, before and along a treatment with Finasteride, 5 mg/die (Finastid, neopharmed) and Terazosin hydrochloride, 5 mg/die (Teraprost, Malesci), and at the end of treatment.
