A New Method Diode Laser In Treatment Of Benign Prostatic Enlargement

As we all know, the prostate is a disease that starts to be a problem in men after the age of 40. Surgical treatment is required for patients who do not benefit from behavioral treatment of benign prostate enlargement, other than medical treatments. Transurethral surgeries are at the forefront of these treatments, but patients have serious concerns in transurethral surgeries. At the beginning of these are stenosis and sexual dysfunctions that may develop in the urinary canal. One of the sexual dysfunctions is the absence of ejaculation, which is seen in almost all of these surgeries and causes serious anxiety problems in patients.

With the micro-invasive laser ablation method, the laser probe is inserted through the anus canal to the perineal route with an ultrasound probe without any urethral intervention. The diode laser eliminates the benign prostate enlargement and the part that narrows the urinary canal with necrosis.

The main advantage of this method is the absence of pain, bleeding, and the absence of any post-procedure urethral infection. The other fact that patients do not develop any sexual dysfunction is also a priority for patients. It is a process that takes about thirty minutes. The procedure is performed with minimal sedation without the need for general anesthesia and spinal regional anesthesia. The success rate of our patients after treatment is quite high.
