Abnormalities can indicate hypovolemia (which can lead to shock) or fluid overload (which can lead to TURP syndrome
(see below) (Vera, 2014).
Major fluctuation in serum sodium (4-14 mEq/L) seen in moderate TURP syndrome
e an inconvenience or a fatal complication?
sup] Furthermore, the incidence of the fatal perioperative complication known as TURP syndrome
has considerably declined due to saline irrigation,[sup], and the reliable efficacy of LUTS with PVP compared to other types of lasers was verified by a series of studies.
However, there are additional complications specific to a TURP procedure, such as TURP syndrome
, urinary incontinence, infertility, bladder perforation, and erection disorder (Chen et al.
Of the 100 patients who underwent TURP, four patients developed intraoperative subtrigonal perforation, three patients showed incomplete resection, and one experienced TURP syndrome
3-5) The remarkable risk of mortality and morbidity of both procedures, especially TURP syndrome
and bleeding, has prompted the search for minimally invasive laser-based techniques.

The reported incidence of clinically detectable TURP syndrome
is 2% (1).
Unique to patients who have TURP is a syndrome characterized by hyponatremia, volume overload, neurologic deficits, and other symptoms that is known as the TURP syndrome
Another relatively uncommon problem faced in TURP is TURP syndrome
