In addition to cost savings per TURP
procedure, the Olympus plasma platform can be used for other Urology and Gynecology procedures, including transurethral resection of bladder tumors (TURBT) and transcervical resection.
Regarding processing of the TURP
chips, standard protocol was followed.
syndrome is an infrequent but critical complication (Feng et al.
13-15,19) When compared to the national average TURP
cost reported by CIHI ($3447), the cost of Olympus TUVP was comparable ($3418).
Irrigant Fluids--Glycine used for Monopolar TURP
and Normal Saline used for Bipolar TURP
Patients scheduled to undergo TURP
are generally elderly and may have preexisting and/or coexisting medical conditions, including coronary artery disease (CAD), congestive heart failure (CHF), cerebrovascular disease (CVD), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and renal impairment.
It is difficult to determine if the results described in patients undergoing RALP after TURP
can be extrapolated to our specific case due to the higher degree of technical difficulty posed by our patient.
Of the 100 patients who underwent TURP
, four patients developed intraoperative subtrigonal perforation, three patients showed incomplete resection, and one experienced TURP
1 Because of these issues we sought to develop a simple and effective method for removal of bladder calculi with simultaneous TURP
Some of the suboptimal results that patients have had with these techniques are because they've been given a procedure that opens up the urinary channel rather than fully removing the amount of tissue that we would with a TURP
," he says.
improves urine flow rate and patient symptoms with a success rate of 85-90%.
The researchers point out that HoLEP is more effective at adequately treating all sizes of prostatic enlargement, whereas other laser techniques, such as Green Light Laser, is effective on small to moderate size prostates, similar but not better than TURP
and lacks the same long-term durability.
