Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP) has been proposed as a possible new “Gold Standard” for the treatment of bladder outlet obstruction due to large prostatic adenomas.
It has proven similar efficacy to other techniques for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), however there are no studies comparing HoLEP with laparoscopic simple prostatectomy (LSP).
In this study we compared HoLEP with LSP in patients with large glands (>100grams) requiring surgical intervention.
HoLEP has similar functional results and complication rates when compared with LSP in large glands, with the advantage of providing a shorter catheterization time and reduced hospital stay.
