Prostate specific antigen (PSA) screening for prostate cancer has recently been challenged due to poor sensitivity. A number of conditions elevate PSA besides prostate cancer with benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) being most common. The objective of this study was to assess the positive predictive value (PPV) of PSA and PSA density (PSAD) for prostate cancer risk following Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP).

Holmium endoscopic laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) is a well-established alternative to traditional transurethral resection and open prostatectomy for the treatment of benign prostatic hyper...
Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) is an endourologic minimal invasive intervention of benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). The interest on HoLEP is increasing in the literature. The aim ...
There is increasing recognition of the advantages of Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP) for Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH) treatment In the United States (U.S.) but relatively littl...
The continuous intake of antithrombotic drugs during holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) remains nonconsensual. We aim to pool those controversial evidence and provide practical guidance...
To demonstrate how bladder ultrasound can be useful in completing morcellation during difficult Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP). As HoLEP has emerged as a standard of care for the tr...

Today, endoscopic enucleation of the prostate (EEP) has been recognized a method of choice for treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) of any size, including large-sized glands (>8...
In this study the investigators aim to test Thulium Laser 200 W Enucleation of the Prostate (ThuLEP) vs Greenlight (532-nm) laser Photoselective Enucleation of the Prostate (Green LEP) usi...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate improvement of symptoms from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) as assessed by the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) for prostate artery ...
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
Holmium. An element of the rare earth family of metals. It has the atomic symbol Ho, atomic number 67, and atomic weight 164.93.
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.
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) Prostate cancer (cancer de prostata) is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostat...
