Purpose Absorption of irrigation fluid was not detected during GreenLightTM laser vaporization of the prostate using the first generation 80 W laser. However, data are lacking on intraoperative irrigation fluid absorption using the second generation 120 W high power laser. We assessed whether fluid absorption occurs during high power laser vaporization of… CONTINUE READING
