“TmLRP-TT [Thulium Laser Resction of the Prostate by Tangerine Technique*] is an almost bloodless procedure with high efficacy and little perioperative morbidity. TmLRP-TT is superior to TURP in safety and is as efficacious as TURP in 1-yr follow-up. It is a promising technology in the clinical practice field.”

“This procedure, which takes less operative time than standard techniques, is safe and combines efficient cutting and rapid organic vaporization, thereby showing the great superiority of the thulium fiber laser in the treatment of BPH. It has been proven to be as safe and efficient as transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) during the 1-year follow-up.”

Taken from a commentary referencing work by; Xia et al., Eur Urol. 2008 Feb;53(2):382-89. Epub 2007 Jun 4.
“In this statistically well powered randomized prospective trial, the authors have compared thulium laser prostatectomy (ThLRP) to TURP. Over a follow up of 12 months, they reported equal efficacy of the two techniques and decreased catheterization time, blood loss and hospital stay in favor of the thulium laser. Unlike KPT ThLRP retrieves prostatic tissue for biopsy, has a shorter learning curve than HoLEP. The operative technique most closely resembles TURP as compared with other lasers. Before this technique becomes widely accepted we await experience from other centers with longer follow up. However it is becoming increasingly evident that TURP is facing genuine competition and might be replaced as the gold-standard in minimally invasive surgery of the prostate.”
