Laser therapy is a minimally invasive surgical therapies can effectively treat benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Most men experience prostate gland enlargement as they age. This is a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Any family history of prostate problems or any abnormalities with your testicles may raise your risk for BPH.If you don’t get treatment for it, BPH can cause bladder, urinary tract, or kidney problems.
Laser therapy is a minimally invasive surgical therapies can effectively treat benign prostatic hyperplasia. A high-energy laser destroys or removes overgrown prostate tissue. Laser therapy generally relieves symptoms right away and has a lower risk of side effects than does nonlaser surgery. Laser therapy might be used in men who shouldn't have other prostate procedures because they take blood-thinning medications.
The options for laser therapy include:
These procedures vaporize obstructive prostate tissue to increase urine flow. Examples include photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP) and holmium laser ablation of the prostate (HoLAP). Ablative procedures can cause irritating urinary symptoms after surgery, so in rare situations another resection procedure might be needed at some point.
Enucleative procedures, such as holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP), generally remove all the prostate tissue blocking urine flow and prevent regrowth of tissue. The removed tissue can be examined for prostate cancer and other conditions. These procedures are similar to open prostatectomy.
Anyway,BPH can be uncomfortable and may lead to complications, but you can avoid or minimize the symptoms and damage to your bladder and kidneys if you get treatment early.
