RAMON DE FATA CHILLON, F. et al. Laparoscopic extraperitoneal adenomectomy: surgical technique and preliminar results. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2010, vol.34, n.9, pp.806-810. ISSN 0210-4806.

Objective: We analyze the laparascopic adenomectomy preliminar results and describe the surgical technique, for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), for glands greater than 60cc. Materials and methods: From January to April 2009 we have performed 10 laparoscopic adenomectomies. We performed a descriptive and retrospective study and early postoperative results were analyzed. Descriptive statistical analyses were performed using IPSS 17.0. The surgical technique is described step by step. Results: Conversion to open surgery was not required, and none of the patients had serious peri-operative and post-operative complications. None of the ten patients required blood transfusions. Median operating time was 112,5min (80-135). Median hospital stay was 3,5 days (2-5) and median catheterization period was 7 days (3-21). The median prostate enucleated weight was 62gr. (40-93). The median postoperative Qmax was 18,8ml/seg and the median score of IPSS was 5. Conclusions: Laparoscopic adenomectomy is a low rate morbidity technique and reproducible in centers with laparoscopic skills. Prospective and comparative studies with open surgery will be necessaries to choose the best technique for our patients.
