Özet

Introduction: Benign prostatic hyperplasia becomes increasingly more prevalent consistent with the changes in the demographic features of the society. Transurethral resection of the prostate is still the gold standard treatment choice for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). With the advent of the laser technology, laser energy has been applied for treating benign prostatic obstruction and preliminary data suggest that this energy modality is effective and safe.
