Lasers for BPH treatment attracted the attention of urologists due to excellent tissue ablative and haemostatic properties

Several lasers with different properties and application devices have been developed

Laser procedures are the most extensively investigated minimal invasive BPH treatments

Lasers with pure coagulative properties caused considerable postoperative dysuria and prolonged urinary retention and are no longer in use

Haemostatic properties allow for treatment of patients under full anticoagulation or dual platelet aggregation inhibition.
