Abstract

Objective To assess whether patients with acute urinary retention from benign prostatic enlargement can be treated with a combined therapy comprisinga bioabsorbable self-reinforced poly L-lactic acid (SR-PLLA) urethral stent and finasteride. Patients and methods Eleven men in acute urinary retention were treated asoutpatients; they had a suprapubic catheter inserted and the SR-PLLA stentplaced cystoscopically. The patients were allowed to attempt to void spontaneously after 2 days. Results All patients started to void spontaneously within 2 weeks. There was a steady improvement in urinary now rates up to 9 months, followed by a slight impairment after the bioabsorption of the stent. During the mean (range) follow-up of 24 (23-26) months only three patients required surgical treatment. Conclusion The bioabsorbable SR-PLLA stent combined with finasteride therapy provides a promising new alternative in the treatment of acute urinary retention, especially in patients unfit for surgical therapy. Larger, placebo-controlled studies are needed to establish the efficacy of this combined therapy.
