Case description

Millin retropubic prostatectomy. It occurred to Millin that it made sense to approach the prostate transvesically, when it was much more logical to do it directly through the prostate capsule and by the shortest route. Millin now offers us a perfectly regulated operation, truly surgical and that broadly satisfies the postulates of any intervention: - heal well and in the shortest possible time. Current technique for large prostatic adenomas. Medical education in urological surgery for specialists in training. Objective of the Educational Channel.

In 1945, Terence John Millin perfected retropubic surgery for prostate adenomectomy for benign prostatic hyperplasia. He developed the transcervicocapsular approach and it turned out to be an innovative approach without the need to involve the bladder with unnecessary incisions that increased morbidity and postoperative complications. It is one of the preferred techniques when performing open adenomectomy for hyperplasia or benign prostatic growth.

In 1947 Terence Millin performed the first radical retropubic prostatectomy for prostate cancer in urological practice.
