Laser vaporization of the prostate: all as it should be?

, : Laser vaporization of the prostate: all as it should be?. Der Urologe. Ausg. A 47(4): 461-2, 464-6

Laser vaporization of the prostate currently occupies a prominent place among the surgical options for treatment of benign prostatic syndrome. Particularly the so-called GreenLight laser vaporization with the KTP (80 W) or LBO (120 W) laser has become remarkably widespread throughout the world. There are already 100 of these GreenLight laser systems in use in Germany alone. The introduction of a separate DRG for "laser vaporization" is expected to further increase the significance of this surgical technique. The aim of this study is to evaluate laser vaporization as a whole and to identify possible differences between the different lasers.

The concept that diversity promotes reliability of ecosystem function depends on the pattern that community-level biomass shows lower temporal variability than species-level biomasses. However, this pattern is not universal, as it relies on compen...
