Why Laser Enucleation of Prostate for Treatment of Enlarged Prostate?

Prostate enucleation for the treatment of enlarged prostate offers a number of advantages for patients with symptoms of BPH.  Advantages of prostate enucleation become particularly recognizable for men with very large prostate, and especially those who are unable to urinate and suffer from urinary retention or do not empty their bladder completely and have a high post-void residual volume of urine.

Prostate enucleation allows the surgeon to remove a very large amount of prostate tissue that blocks the urine flow without making large skin incisions.  In fact, studies show that laser enucleation of the prostate can achieve similar results as traditional open prostate surgery for the treatment of enlarged prostate caused by BPH.   

An additional benefit of prostate enucleation is that the tissue is removed for a pathologist to look at it under a microscope.  About 10% of men with enlarged prostate also harbor prostate cancer.  While usually, these cancers are not very advanced, occasionally dangerous cancer can be diagnosed from tissue obtained through prostate enucleation.  This is a major advantage of prostate enucleation over prostate ablation.  It is particularly of value to younger men and men with long life expectancy who have a large prostate, elevated PSA and who might have had a negative prostate biopsy in the past.
