Abstract: Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is the dominant factor in the treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). However, Photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP) has attracted more attention in the treatment of BPH. Therefore, this article summarized the therapeutic effect of 80 W to 180 W green laser vaporization in the treatment of BPH. The results showed that the PVP can be the preferred treatment for patients with BPH, especially in patients with bleeding tendency and oral anticoagulant therapy. Because it had the advantages of less bleeding, shorter catheterisation time, shorter hospital stay and more rapid return to stable health status.

Keywords: Photoselective vaporization of the prostate; benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH)
