Urinary function and quality of life after radiotherapy for prostate cancer in patients with prior history of surgical treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia To evaluate long-term IPSS score and urinary quality of life after radiotherapy for prostate cancer, in patients with prior history of surgical treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).In this retrospective study, we reviewed medical records of patients treated in our department, between 2007 and 2013 with surgery for BPH (...) were urinary symptoms (65%) and urinary retention (20%). Five-year biochemical-disease free survival was 75% and 5-year clinical relapse free survival was 84%. At the time of the study, the IPSS after radiotherapy was as follows: 0-7: 77.6%; 8-19:20.7%; 20-35: 1.7%. Urinary quality of life was satisfactory for 74.2% of patients.
