The aim of this study was to explore impact of Benign Prostate Hyperplasia on inguinal hernia formation in elder men through a clinical trial among Benign Prostate Hyperplasia of the elderly patients who undergo inguinal hernia surgery. Three routine preoperative examinations to determine the extent of prostate hyperplasia were conducted on 368 elderly patients who were admitted for inguinal hernia surgery (Experimental group) and on 203 other elderly patients who underwent other nonemergency surgeries (Control group) from January of 2010 to December of 2013. The results of IPSS score, the prostate size, and the urine residual volume obtained from the patients of the Experimental group indicated statistically significant differences from those of the Control group. It was concluded that voiding difficulty caused by Benign Prostate Hyperplasia is a significant reason for elderly male patients to develop into inguinal hernia. It is important to have routine prostate examinations required for elderly male patients with the diagnosis of inguinal hernia.
