Transurethral resection of prostate tumours (TURP)
Electroresection of a prostate tumour is a minimally invasive endoscopic method of treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia. The procedure removes excess prostate tissue without the need for major surgery.
The procedure involves inserting a resector through the patient’s urethra into the prostate. The surgeon will then use the device to resect overgrown tissues from the centre of the gland, leaving its walls intact. The whole procedure is performed under anaesthesia. After the procedure, the patient stays in hospital generally for a further two to three days.
When is TURP recommended?
- pain during urination
- recurrent urinary tract infections
- frequent urination at night
- incomplete urination or urinary retention
What are the benefits of TURP?
The procedure alleviates or completely eliminates problems caused by prostatic hyperplasia, such as urinating trouble or chronic inflammation of the urinary tract.
