Nocturia and sleep quality after transurethral resection of the prostate
International Journal of Urology, May 22, 2013
Wada N et al. - This study aimed to evaluate the clinical efficacy of transurethral resection of the prostate on nocturia and sleep disorders in patients with lower urinary tract symptoms suggestive of benign prostatic obstruction. transurethral resection of the prostate diminishes nocturnal urinary frequency and partly improves sleep quality in patients with nocturia and lower urinary tract symptoms suggestive of benign prostatic obstruction. A persistent sleep disorder after ...
Comparison of fluid absorption between transurethral enucleation and transurethral resection for benign prostate hyperplasia
Urologia Internationalis, April 4, 2013
Ran L et al. - Authors compared the safety and efficacy between the transurethral plasma kinetic enucleation of prostate (TUPKEP) and transurethral plasma kinetic resection of prostate (TUPKRP), mainly including absorption of irrigation fluid, the operation time, the weight of prostate tissue removed and severe complications. The study provides evidence for the safety, feasibility and effectiveness of both bipolar transurethral techniques. Further, compared to the TUPKRP group, the ...
Electrosurgical enucleation versus bipolar transurethral resection for prostates larger than 70 ml: a prospective, randomized trial with 5-year followup
The Journal of Urology, April 17, 2013
Zhu L et al. - Authors compared the perioperative and postoperative characteristics of prostate PlasmaKinetic enucleation and bipolar transurethral resection for large volume benign prostatic hyperplasia. For large volume benign prostatic hyperplasia PlasmaKinetic enucleation of the prostate is associated with less blood loss, shorter hospital stay and catheterization time than bipolar transurethral resection of the prostate. Moreover, PlasmaKinetic enucleation seems to be superior at ...
Contemporary practice patterns of endoscopic surgical management for benign prostatic hyperplasia among urologists in the United States
The Journal of Urology, April 18, 2013
Lowrance WT et al. - Authors compared electrosurgical transurethral resection of the prostate vs laser vaporization or laser enucleation and determined the impact of surgeon age on practice patterns. There was a substantial increase in laser vaporization or laser enucleation procedures performed by urologists who underwent board certification or recertification in 2004 to 2010. However, of those undergoing the second recertification older age was significantly associated with a lower ...
Selective transurethral resection of the prostate combined with transurethral incision of the bladder neck for bladder outlet obstruction in patients with small volume benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH): a prospective randomized study
PLOS ONE, May 20, 2013
Li X et al. - Authors describe and report the results of an alternative surgical method, selective transurethral resection of the prostate (STURP) in combination with transurethral incision of the bladder neck (TUIBN). STRUP+TUIBN may offer a more effective and safer alternative to TURP for small volume BPH patients. Methods Patients were randomized to receive TURP or STRUP+TUIBN in combination with TUIBN. Maximum urinary flow rate (Qmax), voided volume, and post voiding ...
Contemporary monopolar and bipolar transurethral resection of the prostate: prospective assessment of complications using the Clavien system
International Urology and Nephrology, May 31, 2013
De Nunzio C et al. - A modified version of the Clavien system has been recently suggested to allow a standardized assessment of complications associated with transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). Aim of this multicentre study was to validate the use of this assessment tool in a contemporary cohort of patients undergoing monopolar or bipolar TURP. A modified version of the Clavien system has been recently suggested to allow a standardized assessment of complications associated ...
Comparison of techniques for transurethral laser prostatectomy: standard photoselective vaporization of the prostate versus transurethral laser enucleation of the prostate
Journal of Endourology, March 1, 2013
Elterman DS et al. - The study objective was to determine the comparative efficacy between transurethral photovaporization of the prostate (PVP) with a TLEP technique using the 80W 532 nm KTP laser. In this series, both PVP and TLEP techniques were safe and effective. Although changes in Qmax and PSA were similar between the two techniques, improvement in urinary symptoms and PVR was superior with the TLEP technique. The TLEP technique was a more efficient method for laser ...
Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate for persistent lower urinary tract symptoms after prior benign prostatic hyperplasia surgery
Urology, March 13, 2013
Jaeger CD et al. - This study aimed to evaluate comparative safety and outcomes in patients undergoing holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) with and without previous transurethral prostate surgery. This study aimed to evaluate comparative safety and outcomes in patients undergoing holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) with and without previous transurethral prostate surgery. HoLEP is safe and effective at relieving persistent LUTS after failed previous BPH ...
Transurethral resection of the prostate in kidney transplant recipients: urological and renal functional outcomes at long-term follow-up
BJU International, March 21, 2013
Volpe A et al. - This study aimed to assess prospectively the safety and efficacy of transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) for the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms attributable to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in patients who have undergone renal transplantation (RT) and to assess the impact of TURP on renal graft function. TURP for lower urinary tract obstruction attributable to BPH in RT recipients is safe and effective since it improves urinary flow, bladder ...
Effect of morphine on lower urinary tract discomfort after transurethral resection of prostate under general anesthesia: a randomised clinical study
Journal of Anesthesia, March 20, 2013
Menda F et al. - Lower urinary tract (LUT) discomfort is a common complaint after transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), and it may lead to agitation and restlessnes. The authors have evaluated the efficacy of morphine for preventing TURP-related LUT discomfort symptoms. Based on these results, they conclude that morphine effectively reduces LUT discomfort after TURP at a cost of postoperative nausea and vomiting.
This was a prospective randomised study ...
