OBJECTIVES To report our experience with holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) combined with mechanical morcellation for the treatment of symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). METHODS From January 2000 to May 2001, 155 consecutive patients with BPH underwent HoLEP combined with mechanical morcellation and were followed up for at least 6 months. A pulsed high-powered 80-W holmium-neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet laser was used (power setting 2.0 J/pulse, 35 pulses/s, and… CONTINUE READING
