Statistical observations on inpatients and operations in our department from 1982 to 1985 were reviewed in comparison with the statistics for the preceeding three years. More elderly persons comprised the inpatients at our hospital than at other facilities. Urogenital tumors and urolithiasis were the predominant disease of the inpatients, as they were in the preceeding three years. Number of prostatic cancer has remarkably increased. Transurethral operations, TUR-P and TUR-Bt, were the most representative. Operations for the malignant disease, especially for prostatic cancer, were more frequent in this period than in the preceeding three years. As to urinary diversion, ileal conduit was the main procedure used during this four years. Kock continent ileal reservoir was adopted in 1985. In July 1985, open operations for urolithiasis were dramatically replaced by percutaneous and transurethral procedures.
