A personal series of 900 consecutive Hyrntschak prostatectomy operations is reported. Haemostasis with this method is excellent and post-operative haemorrhage has been much less of a problem than in the past. In this series there were 24 hospital deaths (2.6%) 19 of these being in bad-risk patients, the other five being due to pulmonary embolism in good-risk cases. The average post-operative hospital stay in the survivors was 10.6 days. In the last 300 cases there were six deaths (2%)--five bad-risk cases, one pulmonary embolus--and an average hospital stay of 9.2 days.
