In the general population inguinal hernias occur in 3,0-4,2%. In patients with BPH, this figure is 7-8 times higher and reaches 28.3%. In this case, BPH is one of the main causes, which provokes an increase in intraabdominal pressure and promotes the formation of hernias. The aim of the study. Set the frequency of breathing inguinal hernia in conjunction with BPH in elderly men under conditions of a urological hospital. Object and methods of research. A retrospective analysis of 786 men aged 61-75 years undergoing treatment in the urological department of the «Motor Sich» Clinic was conducted. Research results. Combined pathology – inguinal hernia and BPH are detected in 34.0% of patients. The most common type of hernia is type III – 54 (62.1%) patients. Type II hernia was diagnosed in 18 (20.8%) patients, recurrent protuberances (type IV) in 6 (16.1%). Only in 1 (1.1%) patients had a type I hernia. In 47.5% of patients with type II and in 42.9% of patients with type III inguinal hernia, the symptoms of the violation were weak, less pronounced. In patients with moderate urinary disorders, hernias III and IV were diagnosed – 68.7% and 14.6% respectively. In patients with severe disorders, inguinal hernias III (66.7%) and IV (33.3%) types were encountered. Conclusions. 1. In elderly patients, the combination of inguinal hernia and BPH occurred in 34.0% of cases. 2. In 55.2% of patients, moderate symptoms of urination were noted (IPSS = 16.0 points; QOL = 5.1 points). 3. In patients with BPH, in 62,1% of cases, hernias of type III, type II, were diagnosed in 20,8% of patients. The percentage of recurrent (type IV) was 16.1%. Patients with Type I met in 1.1% of cases. 4. The revealed relationship between the degree of severity of symptoms of urination and the type of inguinal hernia, indicates that the change in intraabdominal pressure is one of the etiological factors in the formation of inguinal hernias.
