Has Conventional Standard Monopolar TURP become Obsolete?
I saw this video of Ajay Bhandarkar on ‘Modified En Bloc Bipolar Plasma Enucleation of Prostate: Our Technique for Treatment of Obstructive Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia’ published on March 13th, 2020 in Video Endourology I am forwarding the link for those interested in watching the same.

I am sure many in India and some of them in our group are performing ‘Enucleation technology for BPH’ using different energies. Most would be using Laser Technologies for this. How many are using Bipolar Technology, nay Monopolar Technology, for Enucleation of Prostate. Is this technology far superior from the standard TURP that we used to perform using Monopolar? Do the experts suggest that the TURP that we all used to perform become obsolete and should relegate to history?
I am sure each of you in the will be providing your views for the benefit of our younger generation.
It is interesting that when anything new dawns; one will start punching holes in the existing technologies and outcomes the various adverse aspects making one wonder whether the earlier treatments were causing more harm than good for the patients.
With warm Regards,
