There are some disadvantages and complications of monopolar TURP, such as bleeding, TUR syndrome, longer learning curve and prolonged catheterization.[sup.7] In a prospective multicentre trial involving the data of 10 654 patients, morbidity of TURP was reported as high as 11.1%, with a mortality rate of 0.1%.[sup.8] Many investigations compared the outcomes and safety of plasmakinetic technology with monopolar TURP.[sup.1]-[sup.3,6] They concluded that plasmakinetic surgery maintained similar results with monopolar TURP with less morbidity.
