Introduction/Goal: Bladder wall thickness and bladder mass are higher in patients with subvesical obstruction caused by benign prostate enlargement (BPE) in compensated stage of the disease. The goal of the study was to determine changes of bladder detrusor in patients suffering from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) during tamsulosin treatment. The study was open, prospective and multi-centric. Material and methods: The material in this study was composed of 20 patients, aged > 45 years, with the present lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia, who had not been treated for the previous 3 months. The inclusive criteria also included the value of International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) ≥8 points, post-void residual urine volume (PVR)
