Safety and efficacy of the potassium-titanyl-phosphate laser and photoselective vaporization of the prostate for benign prostatic hyperplasia



Safety and efficacy of the potassium-titanyl-phosphate laser and photoselective vaporization of the prostate for benign prostatic hyperplasia



Reviews in Urology 8(Suppl. 3): S16



The currently commercially available 80-W potassium-titanyl-phosphate laser used for photoselective vaporization of the prostate in men with lower urinary tract symptoms and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a safe and effective therapeutic alternative for a wide spectrum of prostate sizes and configurations. Efficacy data from multicenter prospective studies, comparative studies against other interventions, and single-center long-term outcomes suggest the efficacy to be at least equivalent to that of transurethral resection of the prostate, with a very good safety profile. New technological developments promise to further enhance the utility of this laser for application in BPH and urology.
