Greenlight laser vaporization is characterized by TUR-like technique and a short learning curve

The physical properties of the 532 nm based laser result in a virtually bloodless and safe procedure

Surgery can also be performed by experienced surgeons safe and effective in patients with platelet inhibition therapy or oral anticoagulation

Length of catheterization and hospitalization are shorter than with TURP

Short- and intermediate term results are comparable to TURP.
