[Open prostatic surgery in patients over 80 years (author's transl)].

Abstract

The fact that a patient needing prostatic surgery is over 80 years old need no longer be a reason why open surgery should not be considered in the treatment programme of the general practitioner or internal physician. Out of 45 men aged between 80 and 92 only two died as a result of surgery. Life expectancy is not reduced by the operation.
