    The Prognostic Value of Post-Void Residual Urine Volume, Abdominal Prostate and Transrectal Prostate Ultrasound for Complication of Benign Prostate Hyperplasia: A Case Report Sonographic Analysis

    Ifeanyi Nicholas Malu*

    This case report aimed to evaluate the sonographic usefulness of gray-scale transrectal ultrasound (TRUS), transabdominal prostate ultrasound (TAPUS) and post-void residual (PVR) urine volume in the detection of an enlarged prostate. Benign prostate hypertrophy(BPH) is a common complaint in older men with clinical outcomes such as urinary hesitancy, bladder distention, and other signs of bladder outlet obstruction. The case presented describes a patient with urinary symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate and bladder obstruction. The results show that an enlarged prostate and bladder disease may be evaluated using post-void residual urine measurement of the bladder, abdominal prostate ultrasound and evaluation of the prostate using the transrectal ultrasound method. This case report will make an essential contribution to the existing literature and can enhance positive social changes by providing an in-depth understanding of the diagnostic capabilities of ultrasound technology in the evaluation of BPH.
