Paper Abstract

18 cases of BHP were treated since 1990 by Nd:YALO3 (Nd:YAP) laser transurethral prostatectomy. The ages of these patients from 54 to 88 years with a mean age of 69.6 years. In all cases, there were dysuria, 10 cases acute retention of urine, 5 cases residual urine more than 50 ml, 12 cases abnormal ECG. 4 cases chronic bronchitis and pulmonary emphysema, 4 cases hypertension and 3 cases diabetic. The working conditions of the laser machine are as follows: wavelength of laser: 1079.5 nm; output power of fiber: variation range from 0 to 100 w. The merits of the procedure were less bleeding during operation, shorter operation time and more quick convascence. Cure has been achieved in 11 cases and improvement in 2 cases. The indication, merits and complication of TULP were discussed.
