Treatment of bladder outlet obstruction in locally advanced prostate cancer - Abstract

Bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) is one of the major complication of the locally advanced prostate cancer.

Its impact on prostate cancer prognosis is low and remains controversial but its impact on patient quality of life is real. We performed a systematic search to find relevant publications from Medline and wrote a mini-review on the different therapeutic approaches to relieve obstructive symptoms.
