Abstract

The overall rate of hemorrhage for the TEVP group was slightly lower than for the TURP group due to fewer acute bleeds. However, the incidence of delayed bleeds and clot retention between the two was identical at 3.6%. Because of improved hemostasis intraoperatively with similar functional results in the long term as shown by other investigators, we foresee TEVP continuing as a viable alternative to TURP.
