(TURF) transurethral radiofrequency heating for benign prostatic hyperplasia at various temperatures with Thermex II: clinical experience

, : (TURF) transurethral radiofrequency heating for benign prostatic hyperplasia at various temperatures with Thermex II: clinical experience. European Urology 23(2): 302-306

In 2 years, 191 patients with symptomatic benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) were treated by transurethral radiofrequency heating of the prostate at various temperatures (44.5 and 47-48 degree C) in one session. At 44.5 degree C, 60% of the patients were subjectively improved and 71% at 47-48 degree C. 58% of the patients in retention were catheter free after treatment. The mean increase in the peak flow was not significant in spite of the temperature used.
