Results: MFRml/S (Maximum flow rate) at base line was 12.1400 which was increased to 13.9475 ml/S at 84th day after treatment. Similarly the mean PVR (Post void Residual Urine) at base line was 147.5750ml which was reduced to 89.7500 ml after 84 days of treatment. The mean MLP (Median Lobe Projection) before treatment was 7.0375mm which was reduced to 6.5300mm, which is not statistically significant. The Mean Prostate Weight at base line was 38.0250 which was reduced to 37.9250 after treatment and was not statistically significant. The effect on symptoms was found to be satisfactory.
