This important paper describes a specific technique to facilitate the vapoenucleation of the prostate using the thulium laser. The conclusion of the study was that the thulium laser provides fast efficient resection of prostatic tissue delivering results
A non-comparative study of the clinical usefulness of the thulium laser for laser prostectomy. The favorable conclusions for the thulium laser were that the laser was highly efficacious resulting in minimal side-effects.
An important paper resulting from a randomized prospective trial that, for the first time, clearly shows thulium laser vaporesection of the prostate to provide urinary flow results and symptom improvement comparable to TURP yet with fewer side-effects and
A historical look at the evolution of the KTP 532 nanometer wavelength laser in urological applications. This paper demonstrates how surgical technique and technical advancements combine to further the advancement of medicine.
A paper the describes the earlier origins of laser enucleation of the prostate, in this case using the holmium YAG laser. Later work with the thulium laser demonstrates superior vaporization qualities.
