Keywords:TURP, BPH, Hospital stay, Color of effluent
Objectives: To compare the effect of early and conventional catheter removal after TURP.
Methods: The cases were selected from the admitted patients with BPH by using simple purposive sampling technique. Sixty (60) cases were included in the study fulfilling selection criteria of the patient and numbered chronologically according to their data and time of operation. Odd numbers of cases were included in group-A (n=30) for early catheter removal within 48 hours and even numbers of cases in group-B (n=30) for conventional catheter removal within 3-5 days.
Results: Postoperative hospital stay 47.12 (±7.92) hours in group A and 113.23(±10.8) hours were in group B (p<0.001) that was statistically highly significant.
Conclusion: Early catheter removal within 48 hours following Transurethral Resection of Prostate (TURP) is safe. It reduces the catheter related morbidity and postoperative hospital stay.
