Photoselective laser ablation of the prostate: a review of the current 2015 tissue ablation options.

Photoselective laser ablation of the prostate: a review of the current 2015 tissue ablation options. Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is still considered the gold standard to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). However, photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP) has gained widespread acceptance as an alternative option requiring preoperative patient selection. Four laser systems are currently in use: holmium, thulium, diode and GreenLight. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Canadian journal of urology Pubmed
