Laparoscopic Prostatectomy for Chronic Prostatitis - Full Text View... https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00775515

Brief Summary:

Prostatitis is an inflammation of the prostate, an pelvic organ of men. Prostatitis


can cause great discomfort which varies but can include pelvic pain, pelvic
pressure, a vague sense of discomfort, a feeling of malaise and fatigue, fever,
burning on urination, pain on reaching orgasm, and bleeding.

In many men the symptoms of prostatitis can be chronic. It is estimated that in the
United States chronic prostatitis is responsible for as many as two million doctor
visits a year. The disease can be ruinous, interfering with work, intimacy, and other
things.

The causes of chronic prostatitis are not understood. The treatments commonly
used, including antibiotics and prostate massage, work poorly. We now have
evidence that laparoscopic prostatectomy can eliminate the misery of chronic
prostatitis. This trial aims to quantify and better characterize the effect of
laparoscopic prostatectomy on the symptoms of chronic prostatitis.
