BARRERO CANDAU, R. et al. Transuretral resection of prostate with bipolar electrobisturi. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.2, pp.147-151. ISSN 0210-4806.

FUNDAMENT: To show our initial experience in the TUR of prostate with bipolar axipolar bistoury. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Five patients with an average age of 72 years old, were operated between may and june 2002. They showed important increased in questionnaire symptoms (IPSS). The average ecografic volume has been 57.4 g. We employed Gyrus® resector and physiological salt solution for continue irrigation. RESULTS: The average operative time was 70 minutes. None of the patients showed hyponatremia needier blood transfusion. In all the cases the sound was removed 48 hours after operation, one of them have urinary retention (UR) and need sound tow more days. Hospital stay was tree days except the patient how had UR. At 1 and 6 month there is improvement in the IPSS. CONCLUTIONS: TUR of prostate with bipolar axipolar bistoury can avoid the secondary effects of glicine and allows us to work with prostates of bigger volumes due to we have more time to do it. Nevertheless bigger and better studies are required to value the effectiveness of this new technology opposite the TUR of prostate with monopolar bistoury which keeps being the gold standard.
