In operative management various type of operative procedure may be done, out of which most commonly done now-a-days is TURP. However, both of these modalities cause various side effects.

There are 12 types of Mutraghata; one of them is Vatashthila, which can be correlated with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia disease. The general treatment of Mutraghata includes Uttar basti . Though Uttar basti is a traditionally used therapy, its efficacy with Dhanyak Gokshur Ghrita Yavakshar is not yet evaluated in the management of BPH.
