Abstract

Twenty-one patients with post-operative retention following unassociated surgery and requiring transurethral resection of the prostate were compared with patients with acute retention (control group). Histological evidence of acute prostatic infarction was significantly increased in the post-operative retention group. Prolonged operative hypotension was associated with acute prostatic infarction, as were smoking and pre-existing cardiovascular disease.
