Medicoeconomic aspects of benign prostatic hyperplasia medical treatment.

CONCLUSION: The Markov models are imperfect tools, and resources invested in care depend on both the economic model and the value that individuals and society give to efficiency and cost. PMID: 26643518 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, we compared results of bipolar TURP using the resection loop versus vaporization button for treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) to determine the relative safety profile.Patients and methodsBetween January 2013 and March 2014, 89 patients with BPH were randomized to surgical intervention either by Olympus (Gyrus) Bipolar loop TURP or Olympus (Gyrus) Bipolar button vaporization. Inclusion criteria were; BPH with Q-max    18 and prostate volume >  40 g. All patients were evaluated preoperatively and at 1, 3 and 9 months. Evaluation included IPSS, uroflowmetry, pro...

Objectives The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of a computed tomography (CT) protocol enabling the visualization of the prostatic artery (PA) before prostatic artery embolization (PAE) in benign prostatic hyperplasia, which provides quantitative perfusion information of the prostate gland. Materials and Methods In this institutional review board–approved study, 22 consecutive patients (mean age, 67 ± 7 years) who were planned to undergo PAE underwent a dynamic CT scan of the pelvis (scan range, 22.4 cm; cycle time, 1.5 seconds; scan time, 44 seconds; 25 scan cycles; 70 kVp; 100 mAs) afte...

ConclusionBoth HoLEP and ThuLEP relieve lower urinary tract symptoms in a comparable way with high efficacy and safety. ThuLEP was statistically superior to HoLEP in operation time and enucleation time, although the differences were clinically negligible.

AbstractBackgroundThe continuous intake of antithrombotic drugs during holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) remains nonconsensual. We aim to pool those controversial evidence and provide practical guidance of oral antithrombotics on HoLEP for benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH).MethodPubMed, Embase and CENTRAL database were systematically searched up to June 2019 for trials on patients with and without oral antithrombotics undergoing HoLEP. Number of events and mean value with standard deviation were, respectively, extracted for dichotomous and continuous parameters. Subgroup analyses of anticoagulation and anti...

CONCLUSIONS: Aquablation is a safe and effective option for treating LUTS secondary to BPH. Aquablation is a new surgical option that shows very promising short term results, in particular, due to its short resection time regardless of gland size and low rate of sexual side effects. This technology still requires further investigation to confirm durability and efficacy over time. PMID: 31481145 [PubMed - in process]
