The allocation sequence was concealed in stapled envelopes coded as group 1 (conventional resectoscope
) and group 2 (mini-resectoscope) were retained by the statistician.
In order to standardize the TUR so that the technique while introducing the resectoscope
was always the same, all patients were operated on by the same surgeon.
The resection time was measured from the insertion to the removal of resectoscope
. The volume of irrigation fluid was measured.
After each surgical procedure, urethral stricture can developing due to the diameter of the resectoscope
and the long duration of the procedure.
So he retrospectively analyzed 287 women who were part of an ongoing study that compared the long-term effect on amenorrhea rates of endometrial resection by Nd:YAG laser versus resectoscope
. Despite alleviation of their uterine bleeding, 60% (172) of the women reported postoperative chronic pelvic pain, along with urinary urgency and frequency, dysuria, rectal pain, perineal pain, dysmenorrhea, decreased sexual intimacy, and decreased quality of life.
Similar to the TURF, the tissue is resected in small pieces and removed easily with a Toomey syringe or a modified resectoscope
loop to grasp the pieces.
Research has shown it is a successful alternative not only to hysterectomy but also to transervical resection of the endo-metrium - TCRE - a highly skilled, hi-tech procedure which involves cutting away the womb lining with an instrument called a resectoscope
Transurethral sphincterotomy, where cuts are made in the urethral sphincter through instrumentation (resectoscope
), can provide easy drainage all the time.
One surgeon will frequently obtain additional cold cup biopsies of the tumour base whereas the other surgeon solely uses the resectoscope
to obtain tissue.
Endoscopes--Karl-Storz bipolar resection system: Resectoscope
, bipolar TUR loop and Karl-Storz monopolar resection system: Resectoscope
, monopolar TUR loops.
It was found that from a stock of 27 resectoscope
sets, there were only eight and that 31 equipment sets alone were missing from the main theatre at Ayr Hospital.
To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of a novel method concerning spontaneous usage of both monopoplar transurethral resection of the prostate and Holmium Laser cystolithotripsy we compared the transurethral use of resectoscope
and cystoscope lithotripsy approaches retrospectively.
