[Transurethral resection and cancer of the prostate, an up-to-date view].


Current urological literature, which is mainly concerned with radical prostate surgery and new modalities of hormone therapy, seems to focus little interest on the indications and techniques of transurethral resection in patients with prostatic cancer. However, transurethral surgery still remains a procedure frequently resorted to in those patients in whom the indications and techniques warrant a critical evaluation. The reasons for performing endoscopic surgery (64%) and the complications observed in 50 consecutive cases that had been treated by the author are analyzed herein and the literature reviewed.
