A prospective, randomized clinical trial comparing plasmakinetic resection of the prostate with holmium laser enucleation of the prostate based on a 2-year followup.
will unveil a new surgical teaching simulator for Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP), which is designed to dramatically shorten the surgical learning curve for urologists to practice this gold standard treatment for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).
a global developer, manufacturer and seller of laser, light-based and radiofrequency devices for surgical, aesthetic, and ophthalmic applications, announced today at the American Urological Association's (AUA) annual show the introduction of a Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP) training simulator and the PolyScope Disposable Ureteroscope(1), a new flexible scope with enhanced vision and flexibility.
Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate for prostates larger than 175 grams.
Among them holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP), GreenLight photo-selective vaporization of the prostate (PVP) and the Olympus Plasma Button are being increasingly used in BPH in the United States (in 2008, TURP accounted for 30% of all BPH procedures).
In particular, minimally invasive laser treatments including transurethral holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) and photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP) are currently challenging TURP as the first line surgical treatment of choice.
