Abstract

A 75-year-old man with urinary retention was referred to our hospital. Pelvic magnetic resonance imaging showed that his prostate was remarkably enlarged, with an estimated prostate weight of 509 g. He underwent TUEB (transurethral enucleation with bipolar) combined with cystotomy. The surgical specimen weighed 349 g. He did well postoperatively, and his urinary function was improved at 3 months after the operation. Although transurethral methods are effective for resection of adenoma and control of bleeding, effective performance of the procedure with a resectoscope and resection of an adenoma in cases of giant prostatic hypertrophy need to be considered on a case-by-case basis.
