PURPOSE We compared the safety and efficacy of diode laser enucleation of the prostate (DiLEP) with plasmakinetic enucleation and resection of the prostate (PKERP). PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 80 patients with bladder outflow obstruction from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) were randomly assigned to either DiLEP or PKERP prospectively. All patients were assessed preoperatively and followed up at 3, 6, and 12 months postoperatively. Baseline characteristics of the patients… CONTINUE READING
