Introduction: The purpose of this prospective study is to determine the effectiveness of method for vaporisation and elimination of the prostate adenoma. The results are analysed that obtain when combining this Laser-method with the Resection of low pressure. Material and Method: 151 patients with BPH symptomatic were treated between august 2004 and january 2006 with the KTP-Laser or combined with low pressure TURP. The additional Resection was carried out in those patients with great adenomas or to have accentuated middle lobule. The ablative effect was controlled at the end of the operation with TRUS (transrectal ultrasound). Results: 151 patients were divided in 2 groups, group 1 (n:43) those with single laser treatment and group 2 (n:108) with combined treatment. The control of the post-miccional peak-flow demonstrates an increase of 65,6% in group 1, and of 122,4 % in group 2. Conclusion: Our study puts of open, the advantages to combine both operative procedures to mainly obtain a better result in the ablation of the prostate adenoma in prostates of great size.
