Benign prostatic obstruction (BPO) is a common cause of urinary symptoms in men older than 40-years of age.
Management Options for patients with BPO
Medical Therapies
5 α reductase inhibitors:
Finasteride (Proscar)
Alpha- blockers:Trazosin (Itrin),Doxazosin (Cardura),Alfuzosin (Xatral).,Tamsulosin (Flomax, Omnic)

Surgical Therapy of BPO
Open prostatectomy
Transurethral prostatectomy
TURP (Resection)
TUVP (Vaporization)
TUVRP (Vaporization-Resection)
Transurethral resection of the Prostate (TURP) using a standard wire loop and electrosurgical unit is still regarded as the “Gold Standard” in the treatment of men with BPO
Transurethral vaporization of the prostate (TUVP)
Rolling cylinder (The Vaportrode) provides enhanced contact with prostatic tissue using augmented electrocutting energy.Electrovaporization current maintained efficacy of TURP with minimal bleeding and electrolyte disturbances.
Disadvantages: Slow and Lack of prostatic tissue for histopathological examination.
