Prostate Surgery Guide

Surgery Guide of HoLEP

Surgery Guide as good examples 

 

A variety of surgical techniques can also be utilized to perform HoLEP. The learning curve of the HoLEP procedure is also steep and many investigators agree to the opinion that it is very difficult to overcome the learning curve in a short period of time if they do not have a professional assistant to help them.

 

For small prostates, conventional TURP or inside-to-outside laser prostate surgeries are available. However, the enucleation technique is absolutely necessary to perform transurethral surgery for large prostates. The Holmium laser encleation is favorable to the complete removal of enlarged prostate!!

Enucleation

Enucleation is the keyword of prostate surgery

"As a general surgical technique, enucleation refers to the surgical removal of a mass without cutting into or dissecting it."

In the prostate surgery, conventional TURP (inside-to-outside) has been the standard treatment of prostate. However, this surgery has shown incomplete resection of prostate in many cases. Recently, outside-to-inside removal of enlarged prostate, "enucleation (outside-to-inside)",  is regarded as a good alternative method to the conventional inside-to-outside technique. The encleation is favorable to the complete removal of enlarged prostate and available by all the methods of monopolar, bipolar (TUEB), holmium laser (HoLEP), and Thulium laser (ThuLEP). Among them, HoLEP has been getting spotlight in the urology field.

 

TURP: TransUrethral Resection of Prostate

TUEB: TransUrethral Encleation of Bipolar 

HoLEP: Holmium Laser Enucleation of Prostate

ThuLEP: Thulium Laser Enucleation of Prostate
