BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIABENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIABPHBPHDefinition• I- Microscopic (BPH) refers to histological proliferation.• II- Macroscopic: senile prostatic enlargement (SPE)refers to organ enlargement due to cellular proliferation.• III-Clinical: refers to the lower urinary tract symptomsthought to be due to BP obstruction.
BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIABENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIAIncidenceIncidence- BPH is a disease of the elderly men- The most common benign neoplasm in the aging male- Usually > 60 years Rarely < 40years- Normal prostate is about 18-25 gm
BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIABENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA• BPH arises from the peri-urethral glands in thetransition zone• BPH occurs in almost all men who have normal serumtestosterone level and who lived long enough• Testosterone (T) ---under the effect of 5-alpha reductaseenzyme in the stromal cells is converted toDihydrotestosterone (DHT) which leads to glandularepithelial proliferation.
BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIABENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIAPathologyPathologyI- MicroscopyHyperplasia and hypertrophy of the glands + smooth muscles +fibrous tissue stroma• Mainly glandular------- (soft)• Mainly fibrous stroma------ (firm)II- GrossPattern:* Monolobar = Middle lobe*Bilobar = 2 lateral lobes*Trilobar = Middle + 2 Lateral lobesThe hyperplastic lobes outwardly compress the surrounding zones Surgical capsulewith a plane of cleavage in between
BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIABENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIAPathophysiology of obstruction:Pathophysiology of obstruction:I- Static component- Bulk of the gland elongation, compression andangulations of the prostatic urethra- Middle lobe obstruction of the bladder neck (ball-valve )II- Dynamic component- Prostatic smooth muscle are innervated by alpha-adrenergic fibers- Atony of the detrusor muscle by long standingobstruction resulting in chronic retention
BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIABENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIASymptomsSymptomsI- Lower urinary tract symptoms ( LUTs)A. Obstructive symptoms- Hesitancy- Weak urinary stream- Straining during urination.- Sense of incomplete emptying- Terminal dribblingB. Irritative symptoms- Frequency- Urgency- Urge incontinenceII- HematuriaIII- ComplicationsRetentionInfectionBladder stone.Symptoms of renal failure (in patients with chronic retention).
BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIABENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA• Investigations:• I- Uroflowmetry• - Simple and non-invasive.• - Normal maximum flow rate (Q-Max) >18 ml/second• -Maximum Flow Rate < 10ml/Sec is indicative ofobstruction &/or weak detrusor muscle• II- Laboratory Investigations• - Urinalysis• - Serum creatinine• - Serum PSA ( prostatic specific antigen, <4ng/ml).
BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIABENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIAIII- Diagnostic ImagingA. U/S Abdominal- Gives an idea about kidneys, post voiding residual, size of theprostate and other pathology ,e.g. bladder stone, diverticulumB. Plain KUB and IVUStonesUpper tract affectionSmooth basal filling defectFish hook of the lower uretersBladder trabeculations, cellules, and diverticulaPost-voiding film
BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIABENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIATreatmentTreatmentI- Medical TreatmentWatchful waitingPhytotherapy e.g. pumpkin seed oilAlpha-blockers e. g. doxazosin, Terazocin, Tamsolucin5-alpha reductase inhibitors e. g. finastride, Dutasteride.
BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIABENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIAII- Surgical treatmentA. Transurethral resection of the prostate(TURP):This is the gold standard option.B. Open prostatectomy:Retropubic, transvesical and perineal routesN.B. Histopathological examination.
III- Less invasive methods (Still inferior to TURP):- Laser,- hyperthermia,- Incisions,- Balloon dilatation.
BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIABENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIAIndications of surgeryIndications of surgery1. Repeated attacks of acute urine retention2. Chronic retention, hydronephrosis3. Hematuria (repeated significant)4. Recurrent UTI5. Bladder stone6. Severe obstructive symptoms7. Poor response to medical therapy8. Side effects of medical treatment.
Complications of prostatectomyComplications of prostatectomyA- Complications of anesthesiaB- intra-operative- Bleeding- TUR syndrome- Trauma (urethra, B.N., bladder)C- Immediate post-operative- Bleeding primary, reaction- Problems with catheters- Re-retentionD- Delayed post-operative- Bleeding secondary- Infection UTI, Wound- Urine leak- Urine incontinence- Urethral stricture
BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIABENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA- 20% of post-adenectomy biopsies have prostate cancer.- The peripheral zone (surgical capsule) may still at risk ofdeveloping cancer after TURP or Open prostatectomy;Follow up is essential by PSA & clinical evaluation.

PROSTATE CANCERPROSTATE CANCERNormal prostate is about 18-25 gm- Is a disease of the elderly men- One of the most common neoplasm in the aging male
Prostate CancerProstate Cancer• P Ca is the most common non-skin cancer among men.• Common in USA & Europe.• Men have 1 in 6 life time risk of developing P Ca.• Pathologic prevalence > clinical incidence• About 30% of men > 50 years have P Ca at autopsy.• Specimens from men > 80 years show 80% P Ca
Prostate CancerProstate Cancer• It is a Heterogeneous, wide spectrum disease.• Often, It is a slowly progressive disease.
Prostate CancerProstate Cancer• P Ca rarely causes symptoms early in thecourse of the disease.• The majority of adenocarcinomas arise in theperiphery of the gland distant from the urethra.
PROSTATICPROSTATIC SymptomsSymptomsI- Lower urinary tract symptoms ( LUTs)A. Obstructive symptoms- Hesitancy- Weak urinary stream- Straining during urination.- Sense of incomplete emptying- Terminal dribblingB. Irritative symptoms- Frequency- Urgency- Urge incontinence
PROSTATICPROSTATIC SymptomsSymptomsII- Hematuria More common with BPHIII- ComplicationsRetentionUT InfectionBladder stone.Symptoms of renal failure (in patients with chronic retention).IV- Symptoms of Mets (with cancer)Bone painGeneral symptoms
PROSTATICPROSTATICSignsSigns- Elderly Male- DRE: Size- Shape- Consistency- symmetry- Suprapubic Area (urine retention)- Renal mass ( hydronephrosis)- Hernia orfices (straining)- Neurological examination (S2,3,4)- Signs of renal failure (late).
Diagnosis of prostate CancerDiagnosis of prostate CancerEarly diagnosisEarly diagnosis- DRE Asymmetry, hard nodules- Serum PSA 0-4 ng/ml- TRUS-directed prostatic Bx.
Early detection of prostate CancerEarly detection of prostate CancerPSAPSAPSA is organ-specificbut not cancer specific
Early detection of prostate CancerEarly detection of prostate CancerPSAPSAPSA elevations-Prostate disease (BPH, prostatitis, P Ca)-prostate manipulation (massage, Bx).
