PATIENTS AND METHODS: •  Prospective database of 288 men treated with PVP from November 2006-2009 •  33 men identified to have transrectal ultrasound measured prostate size >120 cc •  All but 9 men not in urinary retention or on anticoagulant medications •  Average ASA Score 2.25 (range 1-4) with 11 having an ASA Score of 3 or more
RESULTS: •  Mean operating time and laser time 109 and 86 minutes respectively •  IPSS, QoL and Qmax changes from baseline to 3 months for those not in retention were 24 to 8.6, 5.0 to 1.8 and 7.5 mL/s to 19.6 mL/s respectively •  Post void residual in these men fell from a mean of 235 mL to 88 mL •  Average fall in PSA was 38% for 22 men with paired PSA data •  Post operative urinary retention in 4 men resolved. 2 late onset clot urinary retention
CONCLUSION: •  Early results demonstrate PVP to be safe and efficacious on early follow up in a high risk group of patients with significantly enlarged prostates, anticoagulation and urinary retention.
