Laser TURP, a minimally invasive surgery - is usually performed under aseptic precautions and short-acting general anaesthesia. A small calibre cystoscope is introduced into the bladder under camera control. A laser fibre, in this case Diode 980, is then introduced through the side channel of the cystoscope and laser ablation of the prostate is performed by delivering a several bursts of energy. The energy used is between 120 – 140 watts with an intensity level of II to III. A Foley catheter is placed in the bladder at the end of the procedure, and the same is removed after 24 – 36 hours. Normal saline is used as an irrigation fluid throughout the procedure.
