STUDIES ON ARTERIOGRAPHY OF THE PROSTATE PART4. CHANGES TO EFFECT OF ANTIANDORGENIC THERAPY ON ARTERIOGRAM IN CACES OF PROSTATIC CANCER

By 長義 河島

Abstract

Pelvic arteriography was performed in 4 cases of histologically proven carcinoma of the prostate before and after the anti-androgen therapy. In 2 cases in which the therapy was effective showed marked decrease of the prostatic vascularity in the area of the inferior vesical artery. On the other hand, in 2 cases which did not respond the therapy showed more vascularity of the prostatic area along the inferior vesical artery as well as feeding arteries from other arterial trees. The vascular change seemed extending more proximally. Pelvic arteriography in carcinoma of the prostate seems to be significant in differential diagnosis from benign prostatic hypertrophy and in therapeutic evaluation
