Clinical study on benign prostatic hypertrophy by transrectal color Doppler flow imaging

, : Clinical study on benign prostatic hypertrophy by transrectal color Doppler flow imaging. Zhongguo Chaosheng Yixue Zazhi 18(1): 36-39

Objective: To estimate the value of the prostatic size and the inner gland hemodynamics for therapeutic efficacy on benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). Methods: Two hundred and forty eight cases were devided randomly into two groups A and B, receiving the therapy of finasteride and yi qi tong lin chong ji (Chinese traditional medicine) respectively. The prostates were observed by transrectal color Doppler flow imaging pre- and post-treatment. Results: The thickness and length of the prostate pre- and post-treatment were not significantly different both in A and B groups (P>0.05). The systolic velocity (Vs), diastolic velocity (Vd), RI and diameter of inner gland artery were significantly decreased in each group after treatment. Conclusions: The therapeutic efficacy of finasteride on BPH can be evaluated by the hemodynamic parameters of inner gland artery, but the size of the prostate can not, yi qi tong lin ji for treating BPH has the same efficiency as finasteride and is fitted to use widely for its low price.
