PURPOSE Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) is known to have a steep learning curve and, as a result, its clinical usage has limitations. 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)
PURPOSE The objective of this study was to report the experience acquired at the Seoul National University Hospital with Holmium Laser Enucleation of Prostate (HoLEP), combined with mechanical morcellation for symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). METHODS A retrospective review was performed on the clinical data of 309 consecutive patients who(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)
PURPOSE We evaluated the long-term outcomes of the tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) procedure for the treatment of female urinary incontinence (UI). 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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
AIMS We examined the impact of patient-perceived incontinence severity (PPIS) on health-related quality of life (QoL) and sexual function in women with urinary incontinence (UI). METHODS Patients were recruited from clinic practices at one hospital. Between May 2004 and June 2006, 353 women 27-79 years old (mean 55.7) underwent detailed evaluations. To(More)
PURPOSE This study was conducted to perform a comparative analysis of the efficacy and safety of photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP) for treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men with a prostate volume greater than 60 cc. MATERIALS AND METHODS The clinical data of 249 men with symptomatic BPH who underwent PVP between January(More)
