Transurethral resection of the prostate is performed in cases of BPH (benign prostate hyperplasia) which commonly occurs in middle–aged and elderly men. BPH often causes lower urinary symptoms, with urgency, frequency, straining weak flow, infection, and incomplete bladder emptying. Holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) combined with mechanical morcellation represents the latest refinement of holmium:YAG surgical treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Report 52649 if the prostate is enucleated with morcellation (fragmentation of larger tissues into smaller ones for easy removal).
