Paper Abstract

Laser Prostatectomy has become popular with many Urologists because it is associated with a lower morbidity than transurethral resection (TURP). It is however unknown for how long the procedure will remain efficacious. The TURP has been shown to require redoing after an average of 15 years. In this paper three conceptually different approaches will be discussed using even more varieties of delivery device.
