Germany: Aquablation, HoLEP Provide Unique Benefits for Men With Benign Prostate Hyperplasia

For men with benign prostate hyperplasia, aquablation provides temporary benefits for ejaculation and continence at three months, while holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) has superior operation time, safety profile, and volumetric results, according to a study published online May 9 in the World Journal of Urology.

Jakob Michaelis, from the Medical Centre-University of Freiburg in Germany, and colleagues compared the outcomes of aquablation (16 patients) and HoLEP (24 patients) among men with benign prostate hyperplasia.
