This operation opens the prostate cavity by shaving the inside of the prostate gland. It is carried out through the penis. A catheter is placed after the operation until bleeding settles, which is usually a day or two, and a hospital stay of several days is generally to be anticipated. Bladder neck incision is a similar operation that divides the bladder neck next to the prostate, and is necessary when the bladder neck rather than the prostate is causing the obstruction. These operations generally results in retrograde ejaculation (i.e. no external ejaculation), and there is a risk to erectile function.
These operations on the prostate and bladder neck can now be carried out with laser treatment which offers shorter hospital stay, shorter catheter duration, less discomfort and lower risk of serious complications.
