Open Adenomectomy and Laparoscopic Variants

Prostate adenomectomy is the removal of prostate adenoma. This ablation may be surgical (open) or endoscopic. However the use of the term adenomectomy synonymous with surgical removal of the adenoma. This can be carried out by transvesical hypogastric or retropubic route. The perineal, sacrococcygeal or coccypereal pathways were discontinued. The transurethral pathway is that of

Other Non-medicated Treatments for Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy

  Although prostate transurethral resection (TURP) and laser treatments (PVP, prostate enucleation) are the most common surgical procedures for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), other options Non-medicinal products may also be considered. These techniques usually do not remove the adenoma from the prostate but are promoted as being able to reduce the inconvenient

Variants to conventional transurethral resection of the prostate

Since the description of the first transurethral prostate resection (TURP) in 1901, the development of the technique has made it the reference treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Although high adenomectomy (AVH) provides a better anatomical result, TURP is proposed as a first-line treatment because of its lower morbidity. Classically performed using a monopolar electric

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP)

Prostate transurethral resection (TURP) is still widely used and is still considered the gold standard surgical technique for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Until recently, this transurethral resection and open adenomectomy were the only surgical alternatives for the treatment of BPH. Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is an operation that requires approximately

The treatment of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasis

The prostate adenoma also called benign prostatic hyperplasia should be treated when it causes a significant impact on the urinary tract and exposed to the occurrence of complications. Among the various possible methods of treatment, enucleation of the prostate adenoma holmium laser (HOLEP®) described herein has a number of advantages. The benign prostatic hyperplasia (benign

The role of alpha blockers in the treatment of prostate adenoma

In patients with moderate enlargement of the prostate and urinary tract symptoms of moderate intensity but nevertheless sufficiently embarrassed to claim that treatment, alpha blockers are often prescribed as first line. Alpha blocker is short for antagonist of alpha-adrenergic receptors, a class of drugs was initially developed for the treatment of hypertension. Alpha blockers allow

PDE 5 inhibitors and combination therapy

Studies have established a physiological link between erectile dysfunction and the urinary symptoms that accompany BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia). Prescribed for erectile dysfunction, phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE 5) inhibitors -including sildenafil (Viagra) and vardenafil (Levitra) as well as tadalafil- augment cyclic GMP, a chemical that relaxes smooth muscle in the penis, improving blood flow during sexual stimulation. PDE

5-alpha-reductase inhibitor drugs for BPH

The two FDA-approved 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors, dutasteride (Avodart) and finasteride (Proscar), shrink the prostate, but they are relatively slow in having an effect and do not relieve urinary symptoms as reliably as the alpha blockers. 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors work by altering hormone ratios within the prostate. Specifically, they interfere with the action of 5-alpha reductase, an enzyme

Alpha blockers treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia

For men with moderate enlargement of the prostate and moderate urinary problems that are too bothersome not to treat, doctors often first prescribe an alpha blocker. Alpha blocker is shorthand for alpha-adrenergic–receptor antagonist, a class of medications that was originally approved to treat high blood pressure. Alpha blockers relax smooth muscle tissue by blocking the
