In patients with an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia), is treatment using photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP 120 Watt) as effective and cost-effective as the s...
The study is a multicentric randomized control trial with 4-year follow-up comparing perioperative and postoperative outcomes for transurethral plasmakinetic enucleation of prostate(TUKEP)...
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...
This study will prospectively evaluate a new electrosurgical procedure (bipolar transurethral prostatectomy) in men with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia.
RATIONALE: Transurethral resection is a less invasive type of surgery for bladder cancer or benign prostatic hyperplasia. Transurethral resection using a loop resectoscope may have fewer s...
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland, which results in the development of lower urinary tract symptoms that can interfere with a patient's daily acti...
Transurethral resection is currently considered as standard endoscopic treatment for lower urinary tract obstruction due to benign hyperplasia under 80 cc. Monopolar resection loops has been tradition...
The imbalance between oxidant and reductant mechanisms creates a nidus for the etiopathogenesis of several diseases. In this study, we aimed to compare the oxidative stress (OS) parameters in patients...
To study the functional outcome of patients undergoing transurethral enucleation of the prostate (TUERP) versus patients undergoing Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) in men with refrac...
To assess long term functional and safety follow-up data after 80-W GreenLight photoselective vaporization (GL PV) of the prostate and transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP).
Tissue ablation of the PROSTATE performed by ultrasound from a transducer placed in the RECTUM. The procedure is used to treat prostate cancer (PROSTATIC NEOPLASMS) and benign prostatic hypertrophy (PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA).
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.
An orally active TESTOSTERONE 5-ALPHA-REDUCTASE inhibitor. It is used as a surgical alternative for treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
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...
