TURPis- method of prostate resection, bipolar technology

TURPis (transurethral resection of prostate in saline) is a relatively new method of prostate resection using bipolar technology that results in faster prostate resection combined with vaporization, with minimal bleeding during the procedure.

This technology also has the ability to vaporize the prostate tissue by a special probe without any bleeding, in the case of smaller size glands or in patients who have higher risk of bleeding.

TURPis is safe, with no risk of TURP syndrome, which can result from fluid absorption in the classic TURP which is still performed in many hospitals.

TURPis does not affect erectile function and should not affect urinary continence.
