BPH (BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA)

BPH <I>(BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA)</I>

A common, noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. The enlarged prostate may compress the urinary tube (urethra), which courses through the center of the prostate, impeding the flow of urine from the bladder through the urethra to the outside.

DESCRIPTION

Why BPH Laser Surgery?

The simple reason why the laser surgery should be considered as a new gold standard for BPH is its superior clinical outcomes in comparison with TURP including the reduced blood loss, faster recovery time, reduced or no hospital time, and almost no presence of perioperative morbidities.

Its great hemostatic properties guarantee almost a bloodless procedure. The superficial penetration depth results in preservation of surrounding tissue.

Since 2-micron laser wavelength of Cyber TM is strongly absorbed by water which is ubiquitous in all tissues, the speed of cutting and vaporization will remain relatively constant regardless of tissue vascularization. The energy penetrates only fraction of millimeter in the tissue, providing the surgeon with a high degree of control and reducing substantially the risk of inadvertent injury.

IMMEDIATE BENEFITS of laser treatment:

  • Shorter Hospital Stay
  • Minimal post-operative catheterization time
  • Quick return to normal activities with minimal recovery time
  • Minimal blood loss
  • Treatments on patients on anticoagulant therapy
  • Early return to “normal” activities

LITHOTRIPSY

LITHOTRIPSY

Laser lithotripsy may be performed when a kidney stone get caught in the ureter during passage to the bladder. The laser procedure is relatively easy. Once the stone is located, a thin fiberoptic is introduced into the working channel of the endoscope and advanced until it comes into contact with the stone.
