Endoscopic Surgery for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia in the Urology Department of the Pr Bocar Sidy SALL University Hospital of Kati

Introduction: the objective was to study the place of endoscopic surgery in the management of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Materials and methods: This was a retrospective and prospective descriptive study ranging from July 1, 2020 to November 30, 2021, i.e. 17 months, carried out in the urology department of the University hospital Pr Bocar Sidy Sall at Kati. Were included, all patients who had undergone surgical treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia by endoscopic route during the study period. The data was entered and analyzed using software: Word 2019, Excel 2019 and SPSS version 25.0. Epi info version 3.53. Result: we collected 70 cases of endoscopic surgery for the management of benign prostatic hyperplasia in 17 months. The age group of 60-70 was the most represented with 42.9% of cases. Lower tract urinary symptoms were the most common reason for consultation, at 68.6%. We performed 21 cases of monopolar TURP, i.e. 30% of cases; 39 cases of bipolar TURP, i.e. in 55.7%; 10 cases of transurethral bipolar vaporization of the prostate or 14.3% of cases. The postoperative course was simple in 92.9% of cases. The probe was removed between D1 and D3 in 62.9% of cases. The average duration of hospitalization was 1.5 days with extremes of 1 and 15 days. Conclusion: Endoscopic surgery for benign prostatic hyperplasia remains the reference treatment in the surgical management of BPH. It is a technique that has proven its effectiveness. Bipolar transurethral vaporization of the prostate, monopolar and bipolar TURP have an important place in the management of BPH in our department.
