On cystoscopy, 113(45%) of these patients were diagnosed as enlarged prostate, 56(22%) as cystitis, 28(12%) as trabeculated bladder, and 14(5%) as vesical calculus, uretheral stenosis and uretheral stricture.
Besides, 70(15%) patients presented with urinary incontinence out of which 28(40%) were diagnosed as cystitis and 14(20%) each as trabeculated bladder, enlarged prostate and uretheral stricture.
Finally, 71(15%) patients presented with haematuria out of which 28(40%) were diagnosed as bladder growth, 15(21%) as cystitis and 14(20%) each as trabeculated bladder and vesical calculus.
The patient then underwent rigid cystourethroscopy under spinal anesthesia, with findings of smooth uretha, non-obstructing prostate lobes, mildly trabeculated bladder wall, normal bilateral ureteral orifice and no active bleeding.
Radiological findings include hydroureteronephrosis, renal scarring, vesicoureteric reflux, large volume trabeculated bladder, conical dilatation of the posterior urethra and persistent or intermittent narrowing in the region of external sphincter.
Characteristic findings on VCUG include a dilated, thick-walled, trabeculated bladder and an elongated dilated prostatic urethra with a relatively narrowed bladder neck.
Cystoscopy demonstrated a moderately large prostate with a prominent middle lobe and a moderately trabeculated bladder with small diverticula.
A voiding cystourethrogram demonstrates a severely trabeculated bladder and bilateral grade 3 vesicoureteral reflux, and a urinary residual of 45 ml.
