A 75-year-old Caucasian male with a prolonged history of lower urinary tract symptoms and sexual dysfunction was referred to the urology department. Assessment revealed a diagnosis of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) and the patient was reassessed by flexible cystoscopy revealing a large occlusive 80 cc prostate. Baseline symptoms of BPH were measured using the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), urinary function was quantified by measuring post-void residual (PVR) volume and QMAX flow rates were also recorded. The patient underwent the UroLift procedure and urological parameters were reassessed at 4 months post-operatively. There was an improvement in the patients IPSS by 14 points (IPSS Before = 22, at 4 months = 8), with a reduction in quality of life by 3 points (QoL before = 5, at 4 months = 2). PVR volume decreased by almost a third (29.4 %) (Before = 390 mL, at 4 months = 275 mL) and QMAX improved by 8 mL/s (Before = 14 mL/s, at 4 months = 22 mL/s). The patient reported a slight improvement in sexual function (IIEF-5 Before = 14, at 4 months = 15) and was very satisfied with the result. The improvement in IPSS, PVR volume and QMAX show Urolift is an appropriate treatment for symptomatic BPH.
