Summary— Prostatectomy was performed on 39 patients with a history of one or more cerebrovascular accidents. Only 50% had a satisfactory result from the operation and 1 1.7% died within 3 months of surgery.
While the age of the patient, the degree of neurological deficit at the time of operation and the indication for operation had some influence on the outcome, the site of the CVA and the period of time that had elapsed since the CVA seemed to have the greatest influence.
