Objective: The short-term outcome of specific laser vaporisation was evaluated in high risk patients.
Material and method: In 2015 a diode pumped Nd:Yag laser equipment was applied at our department. A retrospective review of the patient’s database and phone interview were done about the complications and efficacy. We analysed the complications, PSA value, prostate size, duration of the operation and I-PSS score.
Results: The mean operative time was 95 minutes, significantly higher than a usual TUR. The hospital stay was observed more than the prostatic average. The decrease in PSA level and in prostate volume demonstrated the effectivity of the procedure. The extended I-PSS score indicated the release in the complaints. Most importantly no side effects or complications were registered among this high risk population.
Conclusion: Diode pumped Nd:Yag laser vaporisation seems to be effective, safe surgical treatment option for high risk prostatic patients.
