Abstract

Summary— Thirty-eight patients with bladder neck obstruction were treated by unilateral bladder neck incision. Good subjective and urodynamic results were obtained in 33 patients. Retrograde ejaculation occurred in 1 6% of the patients on recommencing sexual activity. The value of combined videocystography and pressure flow studies is discussed. The technique is not recommended for patients presenting with acute retention.
