Abstract :

There has been an increasing trend towards the use of drugs in both the progression and treatment of AUR due to prostatic obstruction. The immediate management of AUR requires bladder decompression by catheterisation. Until recently, secondary management consisted exclusively of BPH surgery performed either within a few days after AUR (emergency surgery) or within 1 to 3 months after the event, with the patient returning home with a catheter in situ during the interval. AIMS AND OBJECTIVE: 1. To study the efficacy of alfuzosin in acute urinary retention. 2. To observe its side effects. MATERIAL AMD METHODS: Group I (Control): 50 patients were taken under consideration and advised analgesics/antibiotics as and when required during trial period. Group II (Study): 50 patients were given Tab. Alfuzosin 10mg in morning and analgesic/antibiotics as and when required during trial period. These patients were catheterized and catheter was removed after 3 days.
