What is electrovaporization of the prostate

Electrovaporization of the prostate (TUVP) is, similar to a TURP. Rather than a resecting loop, the urologist uses a roller ball to heat and desiccate the prostate instead of actually resecting tissue (Figure 24).

Electrovaporization of the prostate has been used in patients with a history of bleeding disorders or in cases in which it is desired to minimize blood loss. Electrova-porization of the prostate tends to be used in patients with small- and medium-sized glands. Like TUIP, in properly selected patients, it is an alternative to TURP.
