INTRODUCTION: We compare the absorption of irrigant fluid during gyrus plasmakinetic transurethral prostatectomy (PK-TURP) and transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). PATIENTS AND METHODS: 42 patients with clinical benign prostatic hyperplasia were randomly assigned to undergo PK-TURP or TURP. In the PK-TURP group 0.9% NaCl was used as an irrigation fluid and 1.5% glycine in the TURP group. By adding ethanol to the irrigation fluids 1% ethanol-containing solutions were formed. All operations were carried out under spinal anesthesia and alcohol concentration of the ventilated air measurements were made just at the beginning of the operation, every 10 min peroperatively and at the end of the operation by using an alcoholmeter. RESULTS: There was no difference in age, prostate volume and the length of operation time in either group. In both groups, the estimated absorbed fluid volume increased with the duration of surgery (p < 0.05). The difference between mean fluid absorption during PK-TURP and during TURP was the statistically significant (p < 0.01). CONCLUSION: PK-TURP operation causes lesser absorption of the irrigation fluid than the TURP operation. The lesser absorption of irrigation fluid and using saline instead of glycine decreases the risk of TUR syndrome.
