ABSTRACT

This article presents a modified technique for investigating the prostatic blood flow—rheoprostatography (impedance electroplethysmography of the prostate gland). It also gives some averaged rheographic parameters typical of most prevalent prostatic diseases (such as prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia, and prostate cancer). These parameters were measured both under normal conditions and during functional tests. Furthermore, this article classifies prostatic blood-flow insufficiency into several stages. It is recommended that the combined therapy of chronic prostatic diseases should involve endorectal procedures of pulsed fluctuating stimulation (PFS), with rheographic monitoring being used as a feedback loop of such procedures.
