Photoselective vaporization of the prostate is a minimal invasive endoscopic treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) obstruction. It uses the light energy produced by a laser source to destroy and remove urethral obstruction due to BPH. Its main advantage over transurethral resection of prostate is the minimal bleeding allowing a short urethral catheterization and hospital stay. It is useful in patients with bleeding disorders.
