Abstract: Thirty-six patients have been followed up after insertion of an indwelling intraurethral device for prostatic obstruction. Follow-up exceeded 1 year in some cases. The main problem was dislocation of the spiral not only in the early stages but also after several months. Endoscopic assessment of the obstruction seems important during the pre-operative investigations. The ideal indication is prostatic obstruction in patients who are unsuitable for surgery and who need relief of acute retention for a limited time only. In selected patients the prostatic spiral has a place in the treatment of obstructive prostatism.
