|“…With HoLEP managing large prostates is a pleasure
Over the last 4 years I have been using Lumenis 100 watt Holmium Laser for HoLEP and for fragmenting renal and ureteric stones in PCNL and semi-rigid and flexible URS. The advantages of HoLEP over TURP are well known and cannot be overemphasized.
My transfusion rate is almost zero and about 90% of patients are fit to be discharged the next day without catheter. Dysuria and haematuria is minimal and usually settles in 7 to 10 days. In ureteric stones, to see it fragment into fine particles without upward migration is a delight and with 4.5 ureteroscope the need for DJ stenting is really minimal.
Many renal stones which would have required PCNL earlier are now tackled with RIRS. My practice of prostate and stone management has significantly changed-thanks to Lumenis 100 watt Holmium laser".
