This random transect was chosen by taking a number of steps directly away from the end of the transect as determined by pairs of numbers from a random number table. The first number was the number of steps away, and the second number then determined a number of steps to the right (if the digit was even) or to the left (if the digit was odd) of the first endpoint.
Methods: Ninety-eight patients with benign prostate hyperplasia who were admitted to the hospital of between May 2014 and July 2016 were selected and divided into a TUDP group (n=49) and PKRP (n=49) using random number table. The intraoperative blood loss, duration of surgery, international prostate symptom score (IPSS), quality of life (QOL), post-void residual urine (PVR) and complications of the two groups were observed.
Patients were randomized to either the sevoflurane or desflurane group, with an equal number of boys and girls, using a random number table. Data from lead II of a 3-min reading of 3-lead ECG were obtained, while the patient was in the reception area for the baseline reading and again 1 h after the induction of anesthesia.
