Bipolar vs Monopolar Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP)
This study will prospectively evaluate a new electrosurgical procedure (bipolar transurethral prostatectomy) in men with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia.
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that the Bipolar TURP using the Vista Controlled Tissue Resection System is safe and efficacious as a surgical treatment for men with symptomatic BPH, allowing a reduction in the post-operative hospitalization. It is expected that bipolar TURP will be safe and efficacious for the surgical treatment of BPH and will allow a < 24 hour post-operative hospital stay in > 50% of patients undergoing this procedure.

Transurethral Resection Of Prostate
Removal of all or part of the PROSTATE, often using a cystoscope and/or resectoscope passed through the URETHRA.
Complete or partial surgical removal of the prostate. Three primary approaches are commonly employed: suprapubic - removal through an incision above the pubis and through the urinary bladder; retropubic - as for suprapubic but without entering the urinary bladder; and transurethral (TRANSURETHRAL RESECTION OF PROSTATE).
The only species in the genus GARDNERELLA, and previously classed as Haemophilus vaginalis. This bacterium, also isolated from the female genital tract of healthy women, is implicated in the cause of bacterial vaginosis (VAGINOSIS, BACTERIAL). It occasionally causes postpartum bacteremia and bacteremia following a transurethral resection of the prostate.
Prostatic Secretory Proteins
Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.
A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.
RATIONALE: Transurethral resection is a less invasive type of surgery for bladder cancer and may have fewer side effects and improve recovery. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways...
In this study, the investigators designed a randomized and double-blind prospective trial to evaluate the efficiency and safety of the investigators new approach—transurethral ventral wa...
The purpose of this study is to compared the efficacy of 80W KTP photoselective laser vaporization prostatectomy (PVP) and transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) in reducing the vo...
To date, fluorescence and narrow band imaging cystoscopy have been tested in many prospective within patient trials but only as an "add on" procedure. This results in a bias that does not...
RATIONALE: Personalized training by a health professional may improve urinary incontinence. It is not yet known whether pelvic floor muscle training and biofeedback are more effective than...
OBJECTIVES: To compare the safety and the efficacy of plasmakinetic bipolar resectoscope versus conventional monopolar in the transurethral resection of primary non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. MET...
PURPOSE:: Virtual reality surgical simulation is an emerging technology that may eventually fill the gaps in surgical education created by changes in our medical system. We assessed the construct vali...
OBJECTIVES: To characterize the hemodynamics comparing thulium laser vaporesection of the prostate with traditional transurethral resection of the prostate. METHODS: A total of 80 consecutive patients...
BACKGROUND: German residents are becoming increasingly more discontent with their situation. Besides unfriendly working hours and growing bureaucracy the lack of surgical education is considered as ca...
