Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The authors present their experiences with two new methods in the treatment of BPH, the transurethral electrovaporisation of the prostate (TEVAP) and 'wedge' resection. TEVAP was performed in 10, while 'WEDGE' resection in 16 cases. All of the 26 patients were 'high risk' and 88% of them had indwelling catheter. Both methods resulted in less bleeding and intravasation than the traditional TURP. The postoperative catheter time and hospital stay is reduced. Comparing to TURP they have slightly higher costs and the possible burn complications due to the high cutting power have to be taken into consideration. Both methods are proposed only in 'high risk' patients.
