1470 nm laser is better for prostate hyperplasia treatment with different volume size via transurethral enucleation.

BMC Surgery 2023 November 22
INTRODUCTION: The large amount of intraoperative bleeding and the high incidence of postoperative hematuria are still common factors affecting the prostate surgery treatment effect. Our research aimed to observe the effect of prostatic enucleation using 1,470 nm semiconductor laser on the amount of bleeding in patients with different sizes of prostate hyperplasia.

METHODS: According to the size of the prostate, forty eligible patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) were enrolled and divided into low and high volume group in this study. Hemoglobin decline, urinating condition, complications and erectile function were collected and compared before and after surgery.

RESULTS: Our data showed that hemoglobin decline was (10.0 ± 6.2) g/L and (12.1 ± 7.8) g/L, respectively for two group after surgery (P = 0.363). Urination was significantly improved following surgery in both groups of patients (P < 0.05), and no permanent urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction and so no serious complications occurred.

CONCLUSION: The above results suggested that prostatic enucleation using 1,470 nm semiconductor laser can be safe and effective for prostatic hyperplasia, and this surgery produced no significant effect on the amount of bleeding in whatever size of the prostate.
