Classical Freyer's method was modified in which, prostatic fossa was packed after the enucleation of the gland for hemostatic purpose; and the pack and suprapubic drain were brought out laterally. The pack was removed after 48-72 hours postoperatively and catheter was introduced per urethrum for early closure of suprapubic ostomy. Fifty such cases of Modified Freyer's prostatectomy were compared with cases of classical Freyer's prostatectomy (n = 25) and Millin's prostatectomy (n = 25). The duration of surgery and requirements for perioperative blood transfusion were found to be less with our method.
