Reporting a Case with Literature Review on Enucleation of a Giant Prostatic Hyperplasia in Ghana

July 8, 2021 Disease and Health 0

We present a case of a patient with prostatic hyperplasia weighing exactly 700 g who underwent Pfannesteil Transvesical Simple Prostatectomy at the Brong Ahafo Regional Hospital in Ghana. A massive prostatic hyperplasia is extremely rare, with only ten cases previously reported to the best of our knowledge. To effectively address the risk of haemorrhage, we recommend the technique of catheter balloon inflation at the base of an enucleated prostate with 6-hour traction and continuous bladder irrigation to stop bleeding in large and vascular prostates. The case presented here is the eleventh heaviest prostate reported.
