We agree that preservation of ejaculation is viewed positively by patients and their partners. For many men, this factor alone helps them determine which of the myriad therapies for benign prostatic hyperplasia they ultimately select. Dr. Ulchaker is spot on with his observation that many benign prostatic hyperplasia therapies can result in ejaculatory dysfunction with varying rates among medical, minimally invasive technologies and surgery. However, we maintain that preservation of tissue near and around the verumontanum is key to ensuing ejaculatory preservation.

Authors: Dominique I, Ecochard R, Morel-Journel N, Terrier JE, Paparel P, Ruffion A, Champetier D Abstract INTRODUCTION: Preoperative information is a key to adherence to treatment for the patients, but may be misunderstood because of its density and complexity. The aim of this study was to assess comprehension and satisfaction of patients about preoperative information of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) surgery. Factors influencing patient understanding were also studied. PATIENTS AND METHODS: It was a monocentric study on questionnaires including every patients planned for BPH surgery, whatever the surgica...

AbstractPurposeIncreasing evidence shows that many metabolic factors are involved in the progression of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). We aimed to assess the relationship between the status of glucose homeostasis and prostate size in aging Chinese males undergoing transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) for BPH.MethodsA total of 1006 medical records of BPH patients undergoing TURP were reviewed. Prostate size was measured by transrectal ultrasound. Annual total prostate (TP) and transitional zone (TZ) growth rates were calculated. According to the American Diabetes Association criteria, the patients were catego...

ConclusionsThe therapeutic effects of SVCP on treating UTIs might result from the up-regulation of innate immunity in the kidney. SVCP can be used as an alternative therapeutic agent for UTIs.Graphical abstract

This study aims to compare the efficacy and safety of holmium laser technologies (HoL-Ts) and photoselective greenlight vaporization (PVP) for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and to perform a meta-analysis according to the Preferred Reporting Items of Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses guidelines on PubMed, EMBASE,, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials up to August 2019. Functional outcomes, perioperative parameters, and complications were included and analyzed. Review Manager 5.3 (Cochrane Collaboration, Oxford, UK) was used to perform all analyses. A total of six...

Conclusion: By our findings, we conclude that BPH is associated with anatomic variations in posterior urethra such as lengthening of the length of the posterior urethra and increased posterior urethral elevation, which is measured by an increase in posterior urethral angle (PUA). Whereas post-TURP, there is a shortening of posterior urethra, decrease in PUA, decrease in prostatic volume, postvoid residual urine volume, and improvement in uroflowmetric parameters.
