BPH Images – New Procedures

Dear All,

Some new procedures have emerged recently for surgical treatment of BPO. The latest Guideline for BPH has included these procedures.

Can you identify from the Images provided (1, 2 and 3), before and after, as to which procedure they represent. The aim of any procedure is to felicitate easy voiding with minimal side effects.

With warm regards,

    The first image seems to of Prostatic Urethral Lift as even the marks are seen and no median lobe see--Presence of median lobe is a C/I for using prostatic urethral lift
    On second thoughts it could also be the iTIND device because only two lines are seen over the prostate

    The second limage could be of Aquablatio or Rezum system i.eWAVE ablation

    The third image is likely to be of use of Diode LASER enucleation of prostate
