Abstract

In our experience, the Revolix laser has demonstrated being safe, easy to install, with low operative cost, and a very short learning curve. Its efficacy may be better demonstrated using vapor resection for big prostates and vaporization for smaller prostates (the smaller than 35 g). The reduction of prostatic tissue is intermediate with a slight post operative discomfort and a low complication rate.
