A total of 930 cases of open prostatectomies done at Lenox Hill Hospital from 1965 to 1974 are reviewed. The Pilcher bag technique utilized in 830 cases is compared with 100 cases of suprapublic prostatectomy with suturing of the bladder neck. Operating time, intra- and postoperative blood transfusions, hospital stay, and complications are compared. Operative time and intra- and postoperative blood loss are significantly less with the Pilcher bag technique.
