Do you know the terminology of 'monopoLEP'?
MonopoLEP (Enucleation by monopolar electrocautery)
BipoLEP (Enucleation by bipolar electrocautery) = TUEB (Transurethral resection using bipolar)
GreenLEP (Enucleation by greenlight laser)
HoLEP (Enucleation by holmium laser)
ThuLEP (Enucelation by thulium laser)
Now, we can feel that 'enucleation' now becomes the keyword in the endoscopic surgery of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
A 70-year-old men underwent monopoLEP in my hospital because of the refractory LUTS to medical treatment. The prostate size was 75 ml and the urodyanmic exam showed bladder outlet obstruction. Recently, his voiding symptoms was extremely aggravated after he took an anti-histamine medication.
