BACKGROUND: Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) is one of the major problems in the urinary tract of the male. Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is the gold standard in the treatment of BPH. This study aimed to evaluate the frequency of stricture in BPH patients treated with TURP.
METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, we investigated the frequency of stricture in BPH patients treated with TURP. In addition, the correlation between influencing factors with stricture has been explored.
RESULTS: Our findings showed a significant positive correlation between a history of surgery and stricture (P<0.001). Also, there is a significant association between infection before surgery and stricture, indicating that the absence of infection before surgery in patients with no stricture (P=0.02). Other parameters, including duration of surgery (P=0.22), hematuria before (P=0.36) and after (P=0.33) treatment showed no significant association with stricture.
CONCLUSIONS: Taken together, history of surgery and infection before treatment are the most determinant factors in stricture of BPH patients treated with TURP.
