Case description

The young male patient in this video had a prostate abscess. We performed aspiration of the abscess under ultrasound. This procedure shortened his hospital stay and provided bacteriological evidence. Currently, there are many methods of drainage of prostate abscess, but the aspiration of the abscess under ultrasound is considered to be quite simple (especially for urologists who know prostate biopsy) and it  preserves sexual function for young patients compared with TURP.
