There have been many advances in the surgical treatment for benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), moving from open surgery (retropubic and suprapubic open prostatectomy) to transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP, the historical gold standard and still the most commonly used approach), and onto endoscopic transurethral enucleation. The application of new laser and plasma technologies now allows the precise transurethral enucleation of the prostate (PTUEP). In our medical center, we have found great success using PTUEP. Many urologists have found that PTUEP reduces perioperative complications and risks during operation. It can be applied to all size prostates and can even be used with BPH patients taking anticoagulation medicine. PTUEP is quickly replacing TURP as an effective and less invasive approach to BPH surgery.
