The "Uroflow" is a simple and commonly-performed test used to measure the pattern and flow rate of urine over time.
How is Uroflowmetry performed?
You will be asked to come with a full bladder and to urinate into a funnel that is connected to a special measuring instrument. A nurse will then use a bladder scanner to measure how much urine is left inside your bladder. A graph showing the volume of urine, rate, and pattern of urine flow will then be interpreted by your doctor to determine whether any medication or intervention will benefit you.
TURP is the gold standard for surgical treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). In this operation, the obstructing part of the prostate gland is removed using a special instrument called the resectoscope, that is inserted via the urinary passage. The amount of prostate tissue removed will depend on the size of the prostate gland.
What are the indications for TURP?
What can you expect after the procedure?
This procedure is done under general or regional anaesthesia, with an average post-operative stay of 2 to 3 days. After the operation, a urinary catheter will be left in place, connected to a continuous bladder washout. This ensures that mild bleeding from the operation will not form clots and cause urinary retention. The urinary catheter is usually removed 1 to 2 days after the operation, after which you can be discharged.
The Prostate Lift treats Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) by lifting and holding the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way, so that it no longer blocks the urethra. There is no heating, cutting, or removal of the prostate tissue.
The Prostate Lift can be performed as a day case, with the procedure typically spanning less than 30 minutes. The procedure is free from possible serious adverse effects of traditional BPH surgery, such as stress urinary incontinence and blood transfusion, and provides quick relief of BPH symptoms with shorter recovery time.
Who is suitable to undergo the Prostate Lift?
The Water Vapour Therapy is a transurethral thermal therapy that uses steam to treat Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) by delivering targeted, controlled doses of thermal energy directly into the prostate gland. The steam is dispersed between cells, releasing heat energy which causes prostate cell death. Over time, the body's natural healing response removes the dead cells, shrinking the prostate and opening up the urethra, thus relieving BPH symptoms.
Water Vapour Therapy is typically performed as a day case. Post-procedure, patients are kept on a urinary catheter for 7 to 14 days. Patients will be able to return to normal activities within 2 to 4 weeks after treatment. Symptoms and urine flow will continue to show improvement from 1 to 3 months.
