Sechenov University's scientists have created the world's best laser for treatment of prostate adenoma

The Research Institute of Uronephrology and Reproductive Health of Sechenov University has developed and successfully implemented into clinical practice domestic fiber laser, which allows to conduct safe surgery aimed at removing prostate adenoma.

It's referred to organ-preserving enucleation of hyperplastic areas of prostate with a single block, without violating the integrity of its capsule. Prior to such operations were carried out in an open way with large incisions, drainage installation and with implementation of general anesthesia. After that the patient was bedridden for 2-3 weeks.

The laser showed the best results due to soft tissue excision and hemostasis, opportunities to correct any mistakes during the operation, a lower probability of postoperative complications. Participation of doctors in the development helped to make the laser user-friendly. This method is now being tested also for performing lithotripsy of kidney stones.

It's worth noting that the Russian achievement was recognized at the Congress of the European Association of Urology in London in Spring, 2017.
