|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia||Procedure: transurethral resection of the prostate|
Transuretral prostate resection (TUR P) is a common procedure to relieve voiding problems in men. After the introduction of bipolar resection with saline, the serious complication of transurethral resection syndrome (i.e. acute hypo-natremia) has been eradicated.
The post surgical care is generally a couple of days inhospital care. The reson for this, is the risk of clot formation and in rare cases post surgical infection.
However, in selected cases, outpatient surgery has been performed with encouraging results. However, the technique has not been spread widely. The use of ambulatory surgery would reduce the direct cost of the procedure, thereby increasing it´s availability.
Also, complications in contemporary TUR P in the modern era (outside of the selected patients of clinical trials) is lacking. The information of complications that can be expected is therefore an important for patient counseling. In some studies, the use of incontinence pads after TUR P is more than 15%, which is important to reliably ascertain if this is holds true.
