Aquablation versus holmium laser enucleation of the prostate in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia in medium-to-large-sized prostates (ATHLETE): protocol of a prospective randomised trial.

BMJ Open 2021 May 3;11(5):e046973. Epub 2021 May 3.

Department of Urology, School of Medicine, University of St. Gallen, St Gallen, Switzerland.

Introduction: A novel method for the surgical treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) called Aquablation has become commercially available. Previous studies have been able to show similar functional results when compared with transurethral resection of the prostate and a high efficacy has been demonstrated when this approach is applied to patients with a prostate size of 80-150 cm.Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) is a well-established procedure in the surgical treatment of BPH in prostate glands larger than 30 mL and a first-line therapy in glands over 80 mL.

Is Early Surgical Treatment for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Preferable to Prolonged Medical Therapy: Pros and Cons.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2021 Apr 9;57(4). Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Department of Surgery/Urology, McGill University, 845 Rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montréal, QC H3A 0G4, Canada.

Treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) related to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) has shifted over the last decades, with medical therapy becoming the primary treatment modality while surgery is being reserved mostly to patients who are not responding to medical treatment or presenting with complications from BPH. Here, we aim to explore the evidence supporting or not early surgical treatment of BPH as opposed to prolonged medical therapy course. The debate was presented with a "pro and con" structure.

J Urol 2021 Apr 27:101097JU0000000000001776. Epub 2021 Apr 27.

Prostate Center Northwest, Department of Urology, Pediatric Urology and Uro-Oncology, St. Antonius-Hospital, Gronau, Germany.

Purpose: Prostate cancer patients, who are scheduled for robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP), often have a history of transurethral resection or laser enucleation of the prostate (TUR/LE-P) as treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). We examined if these patients have impaired surgical, functional and oncological outcomes compared to those who have no symptom burden of moderate to severe BPH and no previous TUR/LE-P.

Materials And Methods: We compared 368 RARP patients with previous TUR/LE-P (Group A) to 4,945 RARP patients without TUR/LE-P and without moderate or severe BPH symptoms (Group B) in a high-volume RARP center. Read More

Appl Health Econ Health Policy 2021 Apr 26. Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Cedar, Cardiff & Vale University Health Board, Cardiff, UK.

Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in men commonly occur as a consequence of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as prostate enlargement. Treatments for this can involve electrosurgical removal of a section of the prostate via transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). This can be performed using either monopolar or bipolar electrosurgery. Read More

Transurethral resection of prostatic abscess.

Can J Urol 2021 Apr;28(2):10638-10642

Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Prostate abscess (PA) is an uncommon prostatic infection, with risk factors including indwelling catheters, acute or chronic prostatitis, bladder outlet obstruction, voiding dysfunction, recent urologic instrumentation (especially transrectal prostate biopsy), chronic kidney disease (CKD), diabetes mellitus (DM), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), intravenous drug use (IVDU), and hepatitis C. Treatment of PA consists of antibiotics and abscess drainage via transurethral resection (TUR) or image-guided transrectal or transperineal drainage. Numerous studies have demonstrated that TUR of PA has a higher success rate and shorter hospital length of stay when compared to image-guided drainage. Read More

Track and Teach: Identifying Key Movement Patterns in Endoscopic Transurethral Enucleation of the Prostate.

Urol Int 2021 Apr 14:1-11. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Department of Urology, Department of Surgery, Medical Centre, Faculty of Medicine, University of Freiburg, Freiburg, Germany.

Purpose: We evaluated a system for noninvasive quantitative motion tracking to recognize differences in the movement pattern of experienced surgeons and beginners. Since performing endoscopic procedures requires extensive training, and tissue damage due to disruptive movements with sudden acceleration is possible, the learning curve for beginners is of clinical relevance. Steepening this curve may improve patient outcome. Read More

Mechanical and Ablative Minimally Invasive Techniques for Male LUTS due to Benign Prostatic Obstruction: A Systematic Review according to BPH-6 Evaluation.

Urol Int 2021 Apr 13:1-11. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Department of Urology, University of Catania, Catania, Italy.

The treatment of male lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to benign prostatic obstruction represents one of the major interesting aspects in urological clinical practice. Although transurethral resection of the prostate is still considered the surgical gold standard for treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia with prostate volume <80 mL, various minimally invasive surgical treatments (MITs) have been developed to overcome the limitations of the "conventional" surgery. To date, there are no validated tools to evaluate the surgical outcomes of MITs; however, in the past, BPH-6 has been used for this purpose. Read More

Perioperative Medical Optimization of Symptomatic Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Is an Economically Justified Infection Prevention Strategy in Total Joint Arthroplasty.

J Arthroplasty 2021 Feb 27. Epub 2021 Feb 27.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, AR.

Background: Abnormal voiding dynamics may be a modifiable risk factor for prosthetic joint infection (PJI) after total joint arthroplasty (TJA), but the cost-effectiveness of their optimization in the perioperative setting is unknown. Using a break-even analysis, we calculated the economic viability of perioperative voiding optimization for infection prevention after TJA in patients with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

Methods: A perioperative voiding optimization algorithm was created to represent a common approach to treating symptomatic BPH before TJA. Read More

The state of TURP through a historical lens.

World J Urol 2021 Mar 27. Epub 2021 Mar 27.

Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, 625 Madison Avenue, New York, USA.

In 1926 Maximilian Stern introduced a new instrument to treat obstructions at the vesical orifice and baptized it resectoscope. With reference to astonishing historical statements about the new instrument and surgical technique made by the pioneers and their critics we will value why transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) remains the gold standard for most men suffering from lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to benign prostatic enlargement. TURP is currently challenged by recently introduced new instruments and techniques claiming advantages over TURP. Read More
