Abstract

Bladder function has interested man since prehistoric times. Evidence of
health and well being was often measured from observation of urine. When
urologie function was impaired, the extent of the ensuing pain often called for
dramatic measures to obtain relief. The practice of urology has advanced substantially since the days when reeds were used to alleviate obstruction of the
bladder. This article presents a brief historical overview of urology and the
strides made in prostate surgery with modern technology.
