Thirty male patients who presented with bladder outflow obstruction of various causes at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital Enugu, during a period of eight years (Jannuary 1990 to December 1997), were included in this prospective study. The objectives of the study were to establish the degree of renal impairment association with chronic bladder outflow obstruction, to monitor the rate of recovery after relieving such obstruction, and to assess their responses to definitice treatment of the obstruction. It was found out that all the patients had full recovery of the biochemical renal functions with urinary diversion and eventually had successful definitive suurgery. It is recommended that such patients should have initial urinary diversion followed by full recovery of biochemical renal functions before a definite surgery is planned for the obstruction.
