BACKGROUND: COVID-19 aggravates lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The optimal treatment regimen for patients with this disease during the COVID-19 pandemic is still under question. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the All-Russian observational study of Afalaza in the Treatment of LUTS in pAtieNTs with BPH during COVID-19 (ATLANT) was to obtain additional data on the efficacy and safety of Afalaza in this patient group. METHOD: s. The study enrolled 73 men aged 46-65 years with LUTS and diagnosed BPH who suffered from COVID-19. All patients received Afalaza for 16 weeks. The dynamics of BHP indicators, erectile function, and quality of life were assessed after 4, 12, and 16 weeks of treatment. RESULTS: Patients with LUTS/BHP who suffered from COVID-19 had a decrease in the total IPSS score from 21.6+/-8.6 to 6.4+/-2.4 (-70.4%) points after 16 weeks of treatment. There was a direct correlation between COVID-19 duration (and beginning of therapy) and the severity of symptoms after Afalaza treatment. According to the subjective assessment of patients, there was a significant increase in the quality of life and erectile function after 16 weeks of treatment. 9 mild AEs were registered in 12.3% of patients and were unrelated to the study drug. CONCLUSIONS: Results show that Afalaza may be a perspective drug for the treatment of LUTS/BPH in patients with COVID-19 and be used for this urological disease in the current COVID-19 pandemic.

INTRODUCTION: The pandemic of novel coronavirus infection has had a strong impact on the whole medical system, including urological departments. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We assessed the impact of restrictions due to the pandemic on the work of urological departments of private (Medical Center "Avicenna", Novosibirsk) and community (KGBUZ "City Clinical Hospital No. 11, Barnaul") hospitals;GBUZ of the Novosibirsk region "City Clinical Emergency Hospital" (GBUZ CCEH) No. 2, Novosibirsk) clinics, as well as the urogenital department of the TB Research Institute of Ministry of Health of Russia during the period from 2019 to 2020. The changes in the spectrum of surgical procedures, as well as the structure of patients' visits to a urologist were evaluated. RESULTS: In March 2020, the urogenital department of the TB Research Institute of Ministry of Health of Russia was redesigned into an observational one. Community departments worked with small restrictions or without any limitations. In KGBUZ "City Clinical Hospital No. 11, Barnaul", an increase in the number patients with bladder cancer, ureteral stones, concomitant kidney and ureteral stones by 3-27% was noted (p<0.05), as well as those with acute epididymo-orchitis, including testicular abscess. At the same time, a significant decrease in the number of patients with varicocele, pyelonephritis, chronic cystitis, chronic prostatitis, and phimosis was found. A surgical department of GBUZ CCEH from October to December 2020 was restructured to an infectious hospital;this led to a decrease in the volume of urological care and the number of procedures. The Avicenna Medical Center also established anti-epidemic measures, which made it possible not only not to reduce, but in a number of procedures to increase the volume of surgical care. CONCLUSION: Owing to anti-epidemic measures, including the patient flow distribution, an introduction of mandatory testing, an early detection of patients and carriers among employees, mask regime, the opening of an observational department, single rooms, the lack of contact between patients, short length of stay, it was possible to prevent an outbreak of coronavirus infection among patients and personnel. Both in the municipal and private urological clinics, well-organized work precluded the negative impact of the pandemic.
