Background: Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is the most common pathological condition in man that causes Lower Urinary Tract Syndrome (LUTS). The most popular therapeutic modality for BPH is Transurethral Resection of Prostate (TURP). This study describes the TURP outcome in BPH patient with prostate size > 75 grams compared to < 75 grams in Karawang General Referral Hospital.

Methods: We performed a retrospective review of clinical outcome from BPH patient with LUTS who underwent TURP procedure between January 2017 – April 2018. Data was taken through patient medical records and processed descriptively to describe complications, quality of life, and clinical laboratory data. Qualitative data compared with Chi-Square test.

Results: During this study, we evaluated 40 patients, 20 patients with prostate size > 75 grams (group 1) and 20 patients with prostate size < 75 grams (group 2). Mean age in group 1 was 65.6 ± 9.9 years and in group 2 was 65.3 ± 10.2 years. International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) after TURP between group 1 and group 2 showed a significant difference, while incomplete emptying was found mostly in group 2 (p < 0.05). There was no significant difference in Quality of Life Score between group 1 and group 2 (p > 0.05). From laboratory results, we found a reduction of hemoglobin in both groups with p-value < 0.05 or no significant difference.

Conclusions: Transurethral Resection of Prostate (TURP) procedure for patient with prostate size > 75 grams is safe and effective with lower complications and there is no significant difference compared to patient with prostate size < 75 grams.
