Assignment: Prostatic Hypertrophy
Assignment: Prostatic Hypertrophy
examination indicated an enlarged prostate. IVP studies corroborated that finding. The
reduced urine flow rate indicated an obstruction distal to the urinary bladder. Because the
patient was found to have a normal total voided volume, one could not say that the reduced
flow rate was the result of an inadequately distended bladder. Rather, the bladder was
appropriately distended, yet the flow rate was decreased. This indicated outlet obstruction.
The cystogram indicated that the bladder was capable of mounting an effective pressure and
was not an atonic bladder compatible with neurologic disease. The tonus limb again
indicated the bladder was able to contract. The peak bladder pressure of 50 cm H2O was
normal, again indicating appropriate muscular function of the bladder. Based on these
studies, the patient was diagnosed with a urinary outlet obstruction. The PAP and PSA
indicated benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). The ultrasound supported that diagnosis.
Cystoscopy documented that finding, and the patient was appropriately treated by
transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). This patient did well postoperatively and had
no major problems.
Critical Thinking Questions
1. Does BPH predispose this patient to cancer?
2. Why are patients with BPH at increased risk for urinary tract infections?
3. What would you expect the patient’s PSA level to be after surgery?
4. What is the recommended screening guidelines and treatment for BPH?
5. What are some alternative treatments / natural homeopathic options for treatment?

This week you will use your readings from the past week as a point of departure to create your own artistic production and a reflection paper.
Part 1: Art Creation
Select a poem, musical piece, or dance piece to use as a point of inspiration. Create a work of poetry, lyrics, music, or dance, inspired by your selected art piece. Video or audio recordings should be no longer than 5 minutes and must be in MP4 format.
Note: If your art creation requires a separate file submission, please submit in the Art Creation Submission (Recordings) area following this assignment.
Part 2: Reflection
Write a reflection about the relationship between your art production and the inspiration piece. Include the following in the reflection paper:
Inspiration PieceInclude the inspiration poem, lyrics, or recording of musical or dance piece within the document. Use a link in the case of a recording.
Record the title, artist/author/composer, year, and place of origin.
Briefly explain the background of the inspiration piece.
Your Art Piece
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
