Hydraulic hemostasis in transurethral resection of the prostate using the Iglesias continuous suction resectoscope.

Abstract

An intravesicoprostatic hydrostatic pressure less than 10 mm. Hg maintains normal anatomy and physiology of the muscular and vascular prostatic structures. An increase in hydrostatic intravesicoprostatic pressure to more than 10mm. Hg produces a distortion in the musculature of the prostate, especially at the true capsule, opening the cut vessels and making… (More)
