The aim of this study was to determine the improvement in symptoms and quality of life in men with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) after transurethral resection of prostate (TURP). Fifty consecutive patients fit for undergoing TURP for BPH were included in this study. All patients were assessed prior to definitive surgical treatment using standardized questionnaires of international prostate symptom score (IPSS) which includes single disease-specific quality of life (QOL) score. Follow up of these patients was done at three months with same questionnaires. Data was analyzed using the statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) for Windows. The mean age and duration of symptom was 68.3 years and 26.7 months respectively. The average volume of prostate was 46.1 cm3. Preoperative IPSS and QOL score were 23.4 and 5.2 respectively; 56.6% of the score was contributed by obstructive symptoms. At three months follow up, the mean IPSS reduced down to 7.9 and QOL score improved to 1.5. The average change in IPSS and QOL score were 15.6 and 3.6; these changes were statistically significant and correlated with preoperative symptom severity. Most of the patients presented with severe symptom associated with decreased QOL. After TURP, there was significant improvement in IPSS and QOL scores. The improvement was graded as good out come and strongly related to preoperative symptom severity.
