HoLVP

 

Holmium Laser Vaporization of the Prostate (HoLVP) is a safe and effective BPH treatment option that provides immediate symptom relief with few complications6.

 

The holmium laser penetrates just enough to precisely and quickly vaporize tissue without causing deeper thermal injury, coagulation necrosis or collateral damage7.

 

HoLVP is a virtually bloodless, out-patient procedure that offers quick recovery time and a rapid return to normal activity7.

 

HoLVP Is Durable At 7 Years

 

  • Durable outcomes over 7 years1
  • 47% decrease in AUA symptom score
  • 83% improvement in flow rate
  • 15% reoperation rate comparable to TURP

HoLVP Results Are Comparable to TURP

 

  • HoLVP and TURP outcomes equivalent at 12 months
  • Catheterization times for HoLVP shorter than TURP2
  • Hospital stay for HoLVP shorter than TURP
  • No post-operative irrigation required with HoLVP
  • No initial dysuria
