Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,


It is a great honour to have this special issue on “Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia” within the Journal of Men’s Health. This special issue hopes to evaluate the efficacy of various surgical treatment modalities for BPH, particularly the emergence of novel minimally invasive therapies.


BPH is defined as the progressive non-malignant growth of prostatic tissue, often resulting in troublesome lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to bladder outlet obstruction (BOO). The prevalence increases with age and is therefore expected to become increasingly commonplace within an ageing population. The burden of LUTS frequently cause high morbidity, and the compromise of the effected man’s quality of life.


The emergence of minimally invasive interventions for the treatment of BPH has provided multiple alternatives to medical or traditional surgical interventions. Despite this, no treatment modality has emerged as superior, with great variance observed in clinical efficacy as well as side-effect profile.


Therefore, for this special issue, we call for studies looking at the differences in efficacy of the treatment methods for BPH. It is hoped that this special issue will bring the reader up-to-date research, as well as literature reviews, on various treatment modalities, further increasing the current knowledge base on treatment methods in the modern day for BPH. This will hopefully better equip our readers to make the informed choice, suitable for each subgroup of patient presenting to them in clinical practice.
