Frequency Of Electrolytes Derangement In Patients Who Underwent Turp For Enlarged Prostate
Objectives: To find out the frequency of Electrolytes derangement (increase or decrease in serum sodium, potassium and chloride level) in patients who underwent TURP for enlarged prostate.
Materials and Methods: This was a cross sectional descriptive study from 11-02-2020 to 11-08-2020 on 142 patients. After taking approval from ethical committee of the hospital. Informed consent was taken from the patients by explaining the patients. Detail physical examinations were performed and all necessary investigation was done. Preoperatively serum electrolyte levels were noted.
Results: In this study, 142 patients with patient’s benign prostate enlargement undergoing TURP had observed, in which 83(58.5%) patients have prostate volume have less than or equal to 15gm and 59(41.5%) patients have more than 15gm. Electrolyte derangement among patients presenting with benign prostatic enlargement after TURP was 69(48.59%).
Conclusion: Electrolyte serum levels were decreased after TURP procedure. Pre and post-surgery electrolyte should be fully monitored to prevent TURP complications.
