Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the association of prostate volume with post micturition residual urinary volume (PMR) in benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH).
Methods: This was cross-sectional analytical study with sample size of 100, performed at Gilani Ultrasound Centre, for six months. Study was performed in Gilani Ultrasound Centre, Lahore, from 15-5-2017 to 16-11-2017.  Individuals of age 40-80 years diagnosed for BPH were included. The patients who had prostate cancer, who had undergone minor urinary tract or prostate surgery, patient with UTI or bladder stone were not considered in this research. Transabdominal sonography was performed with convex transducer of 3.5 - 5MHz frequency. Outcome variables were Prostate volume and post micturition residual (PMR) volume.
Results: Hundred BPH positive individuals were recruited in this study. The results were gathered which showed that the association between prostate volume and post void residual volume was not significant.
Conclusion: There was no significant correlation between BPH and PMR, rather bladder outlet obstruction could be caused by the enlargement and protrusion of median lobe of prostate.
