Benign prostatic hyperplasia, BPH, benign prostatic hypertrophy or enlarged prostate, animated tutorial, great for patient education. The prostate is a walnut-size exocrine gland of the male reproductive system. It is located just below the urinary bladder where it wraps around the first part of the male urethra. Prostate gland produces a milky fluid that is expelled into the urethra to mix with spermatozoa during ejaculation. The fluid serves as a lubricant and nutrition for the sperms. Benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH, also called benign prostatic hypertrophy or enlarged prostate, is a condition in which the size of the prostate gland is increased. It is considered "benign" because it's not a cancer, and it does not increase the risk of cancer. However, when becomes sufficiently large, the prostate tissue may compress the urethra and block the urine flow causing a number of urination problems and urinary tract infection. BPH is very common in aging men: about 50% of men have some degree of BPH by the age of 60, with half of them demonstrating clinically significant symptoms. BPH is a result of hormonal changes and is considered a normal part of male aging. In aging prostate tissue, the rate of cell proliferation induced by male hormones somehow exceeds the rate of programmed cell death or apoptosis. This results in increased number of cells and enlargement of the prostate. There are two main classes of medication for BPH treatment: - alpha-blockers: these drugs relax smooth muscle in the prostate and the bladder neck, thus relieving the blockage of urine flow. - 5-alpha reductase inhibitors: these inhibit local production of Dihydrotestosterone or DHT- the hormone that is responsible for prostate enlargement. For those who do not respond to medication, minimally invasive treatments are available. These non-surgical therapies use heat to cause cell death or necrosis in prostate tissue. The heat is delivered in small amount and to a specific location to minimize unwanted damage. Different procedures differ mainly in the type of energy used. Transurethral resection of the prostate is a surgical procedure for removal of prostate tissue through the urethra. This procedure has been around for a long time and is still considered gold standard for treatment of severe BPH. Nowadays, it is usually performed when medications and less invasive methods fail.

TURP Transurethral Resection Prostate via Penis Surgery

StoreMD™ for Physician Videos: http://store.preop.com Your doctor has recommended that you undergo a Trans Urethral Resection of the Prostate - or TURP. But what exactly does that mean? The prostate gland is a walnut-sized organ that is part of your reproductive system. It provides some of the fluid contained in semen. The prostate is located just under the bladder and behind the testicles. The urethra -- a hollow tube that carries both urine and semen to the penis -- passes through the prostate. In some men, the prostate gland becomes enlarged. Symptoms of an enlarged prostate include: * a full bladder feeling even when the bladder is empty * pain when urinating * weak urinary stream * infertility * and sexual dysfunction. To relieve you of your symptoms, your doctor feels that you would benefit from a surgical procedure called TURP. TURP is designed to relieve symptoms by reducing the size of the prostate. It is also a diagnostic procedure. Tissue removed during a resection of the prostate or TURP is routinely screened for the presence of cancer. So make sure that you ask your doctor to carefully explain the reasons behind this recommendation.

A well-lubricated instrument called a resectoscope is then gently inserted into the urethra. When the resectoscope reaches the back of the penis, your doctor will pull the penis downward in order to create a straight path into the prostate. Using this tool, your doctor will then scrape excess tissue from the prostate, restoring it to its normal size. Tissue removed from the prostate may be sent a laboratory for analysis. When the surgery is complete, your doctor will remove the resectoscope. Your doctor will probably ask you to wear a temporary Foley catheter. A Foley catheter is a narrow tube inserted through your urethra and into your bladder. The catheter is connected to a bag that is attached to your leg by a strap. While the Foley catheter is in place, urine will pass from your bladder into the bag. You will not need to urinate into a toilet. The nurse will show you how to change the bag when it is full. An appointment will be made for you to return to the doctor's office in a couple of days to have the catheter removed. As soon as the anesthesia wears off and you feel comfortable, you'll be allowed to leave.
