Thangasamy IA et al. – Perioperative outcomes of catheterisation time and length of hospital stay were shorter with photoselective vaporisation (PVP), whereas operative time was longer with PVP. Postoperative complications of blood transfusion and clot retention were significantly less likely with PVP; no difference was noted in other complications. Overall, no difference was noted in intermediate–term functional outcomes.
