State of the art of Thulium laser enucleation and vapoenucleation of the prostate: a systematic review

Urology (Gold Journal) In Press - Mon, 11/11/2019 - 00:00
Tm:YAG laser operates at a wavelength of 1940-2013 nm in a continuous wave mode, which enables smooth incision and rapid vaporization of prostatic tissue, with a shallow penetration of only 0.2 mm. These characteristics make Tm:YAG a versatile laser, allowing the surgeon to perform resection, vaporization, and vapoenucleation. This systematic review aims to summarize the current evidence of safety and efficacy, long-term durability, impact on sexual function following Tm:YAG laser enucleation and vapoenucleation of the prostate and to compare the outcomes of these procedures versus other surgical treatments of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
