Frequency of Erectile Dysfunction after Transurethral Resection of Prostate
Background: The most effective treatment for symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia is surgery. When a patient is diagnosed with BPH and surgery is scheduled, the urologist will usually do transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) to alleviate symptoms due to its positive results. The effect of TURP on sexual function, on the other hand, is yet unknown and debated.
Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of ED in sexually active adult males.
Materials and Methods: The following are the materials and procedures that were used to complete this project. A total of 165 individuals between the ages of 40 and 65 years old with LUTS symptoms were included in the study. Patients with uncontrolled diabetes, a big prostate, bladder stones, or complicated urethral illness, such as corrected hypospadia or repaired urethral stricture disease, were excluded from the study. Every patient had TURP surgery and was cared for according to our ward routine until he was discharged.
Results: The study's participants ranged in age from 40 to 65, with a mean age of 57.50 3.10 years. The majority of the 114 patients (69.09%) were between the ages of 56 and 65. Pre-operative IIEF-5 scores were 18.53 5.24, while post-operative IIEF-5 scores were 15.06 2.50. Patients with ED following TURP were observed in 29 (17.58%) of sexually active adult males, with mild ED in 13 (44.83%), moderate ED in 09 (31.03%), and severe ED in 07 (24.14%).
