Chronic inflammatory diseases of the prostate are one of the most common andurological nosology. This group of diseases includes heterogeneous pathology such as chronic bacterial prostatitis, chronic non-infectious prostatitis, prostate asymptomatic inflammation and chronic pelvic pain syndrome. Currently, biological and physiotherapeutic chronic prostate inflammatory diseases treatment methods are actively being studied, such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy and low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) therapy. Aim - assessment of the efficacy of the treatment model of chronic nonspecific bacterial prostatitis which includes combined application of transurethral vacuum drainage with PRP electrophonophoresis and transrectal LIPUS of prostate gland. A prospective clinical study was conducted on a contingent of 50 patients of "Men's Health Clinic" (Kiev, Ukraine) suffering from chronic nonspecific bacterial prostatitis (ICD-10: N41.1). LIPUS and PRP combination demonstrates the further progress of the therapeutic effect in terms of difficulty urinating (p=0,04) and a subjective decrease of life quality (p≤0,01). Overall I-PSS score indicates a decrease in the overall severity to a mild level (p≤0,01). VAS level of pelvic pain shoved the significant clinical effect of LIPUS and PRP combination (p≤0,01). LIPUS and PRP combination showed efficacy in reduction of leucocytes in ejaculate (p≤0,01), normalization of semen acidity (p≤0,01) and mucus production (p≤0,01). Treatment model of chronic nonspecific bacterial prostatitis which includes combined application of transurethral vacuum drainage with PRP electrophonophoresis and transrectal LIPUS as an addition to standard antibiotic therapy had shown deep positive impact on prostate inflammation. Effects of PRP and LIPUS combined application are additive to effects of traditional interventions in general results of therapy, life quality, pain reduction and normalization of ejaculate parameters of patients with chronic prostate inflammation.
