In order to examine to what extent adrenergic mechanism contributes to the urethral pressure in patients with benign prostatic hypertrophy, changes in the intraurethral pressure in the prostatic zone were measured in vivo by both the urethral pressure profile technique and the balloon method before and after administration of alpha-adrenergic stimulants and an alpha-adrenergic blocker. The effect of spinal anesthesia on the urethral pressure was also investigated. It is suggested that 40 per… CONTINUE READING
