Abstract

A literature search was performed for articles between June 2000 and July 2001 pertaining to transurethral resection of the prostate. Eight of the most interesting and/or groundbreaking articles, as deemed by the authors, were selected for review. Topics discussed include transurethral vaporization of the prostate, laser prostatectomy, preoperative finasteride, pelvic floor rehabilitation, the impact of the quantity of tissue removed, bladder infusion prior to catheter removal, and ethanol-glycine in assessment of the absorption of irrigation fluid.
