The purpose of this study was to analyze the learning curve and early complications following the HoLEP procedure. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective analysis was performed on 161 patients who had(More)
The latest technical improvements in the surgical armamentarium are remarkable. In particular, advancements in the urologic field are so exceptional that we could observe the flare-up of robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer and laser prostatectomy for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Photoselective vaporization of the(More)

AIMS Voiding diary duration may be related to patient compliance and burden. To test this hypothesis, we evaluated patient compliance and burden. METHODS Between January and July 2002, we prospectively evaluated 162 patients (57 males and 105 females, mean age 53.0, range 20-81 years) with stress urinary incontinence or lower urinary tract symptoms. At(More)
AIMS To investigate the incidence of de novo urinary incontinence (UI) after holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) for benign prostatic hyperplasia and to determine predictors of postoperative de novo UI. METHODS A total of 204 men who underwent HoLEP and in whom 12-month follow-up data on UI were available were included in this study. The(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to determine whether the outcome of mid-urethral sling procedures is influenced by the body mass index of Korean women suffering from stress urinary incontinence (SUI). METHODS A total of 285 women, ranging in age from 28 to 80 years (mean 55.4), all of whom were followed up for at least 6 months, were ultimately(More)

MATERIALS AND METHODS We included 141 patients who underwent the TVT procedure for UI and responded to a questionnaire at the 6-year follow-up. The questionnaire included selected questions of the Korean(More)
PURPOSE We investigated 2-year follow-up outcomes of patients who underwent potassium-titanyl-phosphate (KTP)-photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP) laser therapy for symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). MATERIALS AND METHODS Of a total of 169 patients who underwent 80 W KTP-PVP by a single surgeon, we retrospectively analyzed the(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the impacts of terazosin and tamsulosin, on prostate activity, i.e., serum prostate-specific antigen, total prostate volume (TPV), and transition zone volume (TZV). A total of 90 patients who presented with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), ranging in age from 52 to 83(More)
