Changes in prostatic circulation in response to laser therapy and magnetic therapy in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia
The results of preoperative preparation were analysed in 59 patients with prostatic benign hyperplasia (PBH) subjected to TUR. Treatment outcomes were assessed by transrectal ultrasound (color Doppler mapping) in two groups of patients. Group 1 received combined therapy including transrectal laser radiation of the prostate, group 2–transrectal magnetotherapy. The analysis showed that laser radiation reduced insignificantly the size of the prostate and adenomatous node, improved microcirculation and circulation in the prostate. This resulted in relief of inflammation and reduction of the number of postoperative inflammatory complications. Transrectal magnetotherapy has a positive effect on vascularization and hemodynamics of the prostate, local immunity, contamination of the tissues with pathogenic flora.

Correction of abnormal lipid peroxidation in treatment of chronic prostatitis
Lipid peroxidation activity is an essential factor in development of chronic inflammation of the prostate when local and general antioxidant defense are diminished. This fact says in favor of using antioxidants in the treatment of chronic prostatitis. Positive effects of nonenzymic and enzymic bioantioxidants (alpha-tocopherol and ceruloplasmin, respectively) were achieved in combination with rectal magnetotherapy.
