Abstract

Urogenital chlamydial monoinfection was diagnosed in 127 males using enzyme immunoassay, polymerase chain reaction, transrectal ultrasound examination of the prostatic gland. Of them, 72 patients had chronic urethroprostatitis. Microhemodynamics of these patients was studied with laser doppler flowmetry of the prostate and urethra. The patients received etiotropic therapy with fromilide, regional transurethral and transrectal ozone therapy. The symptoms relieved in 4-6 weeks. Repeated enzyme immunoassay and polymerase chain reaction stated elimination of the infective agent. Improvement of hemodynamics and urethral, prostatic microcirculation was stated after administration of regional ozone therapy.
