View Poster


The aim of our study was to compare the efficacy and functional outcomes of three different techniques of endoscopic enucleation of the prostate including monopolar enucleation, holmium laser enucleation (HoLEP), and thulium fiber laser enucleation (ThuFLEP).


After approval by the Institutional Review Board committee, we performed retrospective assessment of pre- and postoperative parameters of 551 male patients aged 54 to 87 years(IPSS>20; Qmax0.05).
