BPH/LUTS Surgery and Effects on Sexual Health

In a recent issue of Sexual Medicine Reviews, Dr. Edgardo F. Becher and Dr. Kevin T. McVary discussed their literature review of surgical treatments for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and associated lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).

They focused their analysis on the sexual side effects of these procedures, particularly erectile and ejaculatory function after surgery.

Such side effects are "underappreciated by urologists," the authors said.

In their view, many of the consulted studies were poorly conducted. Some did not use validated assessment tools like the International Index of Erectile Function.

Their discussion included transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), transurethral needle ablation of the prostate (TUNA), and transurethral microwave therapy (TUMT), among other techniques.

It's important for clinicians to discuss possible side effects of BPH/LUTS surgery with patients, especially when more men are remaining sexually active later in life, the authors said.
