Therapies and Procedures

1. Transurethral Resection of Prostate (TURP)
2. Catheters
3. Lasers (Laser)
09/01/1998 - "Numerous published studies have shown that this laser procedure safely and effectively decreases symptoms of prostatism, increases the urinary flow rate, and reduces the volume of the prostate. "
01/01/1996 - "Although laser prostatectomy has become an accepted technique for the treatment of obstructive prostatism, considerable debate remains about which laser prostatectomy method to use in various treatment situations. "
02/01/1996 - "Two patients with this complication presented with symptoms of prostatism that were relieved by laser resection of the aberrant tissue."
07/01/1995 - "Early results with minimally invasive treatments such as laser prostatectomies, hyperthermia, and ultrasonic and radiofrequency ablation appear encouraging for those with moderate symptoms of prostatism. "
12/01/1995 - "Our main findings were that patients undergoing laser prostatectomy using the coagulation technique (visual laser ablation of the prostate) had higher reoperation rates (16% versus 0%, p = 0.0199) and were 4 times more likely to have prolonged postoperative urinary retention (25% versus 6.3%, p = 0.0389), evaporation and coagulation were effective at relieving symptoms of prostatism with significant improvement in American Urological Association symptom scores and post-void residual urine volumes compared to baseline, improvement in peak flow rates was significantly greater in patients undergoing evaporation at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months (p < 0.001) compared to coagulation, and a significantly greater amount of laser energy was required to evaporate a unit volume of prostate tissue compared to coagulation (2,251 J./cc versus 1,036 J./cc, p < 0.03).
