Abstract

Electroresection of the prostate followed by Nd-YAG laser coagulation of residual prostate was carried out in eight dogs. All dogs voided spontaneously without significant bleeding in the immediate postoperative period. At the time of sacrifice in 6 to 8 weeks, no damage to adjacent tissue was seen in microscopic examination. Re-epithelization had occurred. This study suggests that the addition of neodymium-YAG coagulation to residual tissue after TURP in humans can be done safely.
