Abstract

Evaluation of the Anatomopathological Result of the Anatomical Pieces Resulting from a Prostatic Adenomectomy by High Approach in Patients Operated for Benign Hypertrophy of the Prostate at the Hospital of Tanguieta Zone

Objectives: To determine the correlation between digital rectal examinations, prostate volume, PSA level and pathological results after upper prostate adenomectomy indicated in the event of benign prostatic hypertrophy diagnosed and operated on at the Saint John of God Hospital in Tanguieta.

Patients and methods: This was a descriptive retrospective study from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2020. Focusing on patients operated on for clinically diagnosed benign upper prostatic hypertrophy.

Results: 128 cases were retained. The average age was 65.29 ± 7.84 years. The most represented group was those aged 61 to 70 with a proportion of 54%. The average PSA level was 27.64 ± 70.14 g. The average prostate volume was 89.91 ± 44.72 g. After the pathological examination, 14% had prostate adenocarcinoma. PSA levels and pathological outcome would be related variables. Age had no influence on the patient's PSA level. The same is true for the patient's prostate volume. Only the prostate volume would have an influence on the PSA.
