TRANSURETHRAL RESECTION OF THE PROSTATE

transurethral resection of the prostate

Abbreviation: TUR, TURP
The removal of prostatic tissue using a device inserted through the urethra.
See: prostatectomy; illustration

wedge resection

Surgical removal of a triangular-shaped piece of tissue, e.g., from the lung, gastrointestinal tract, uterus, ovary, or other organs. Wedge resection is often used to remove malignant tissue.

window resection

resection 

A surgical procedure used in strabismus in which a portion of an extraocular muscle is removed (usually at its insertion) and the muscle is reattached at or near the original site of insertion. This is carried out to shorten and strengthen the muscle. See enophthalmos; recession; strabismus surgery.

Conclusion: Submucosal resection of inferior turbinates and total inferior turbinectomy are almost equally effective for relief of nasal obstruction in patients with hypertrophic turbinate.
Submucosal resection of the inferior turbinate preserves most of the mucosa and allows for preservation of function5.
The objective of this study was to compare the nasal patency following submucosal resection of inferior turbinate and total inferior turbinectomy in patients with enlarged inferior turbinate.
Thirty patients in group A underwent submucosal resection of inferior turbinate using powered endoscopic sinus surgery instruments.
GROUP A: Patient treared with submucosal resection of inferior turbinate
Among the patients managed by total inferior turbinectomy 83% had complete resolution of symptoms, where as in patients managed by submucosal resection 80% had complete resolution of symptoms.
When formal surgery is required, submucosal resection, extramucosal electrocautery, and radiofrequency ablation are all effective, as is inferior turbinoplasty.
[19] To deal with such turbinates, many techniques have been advocated: intraturbinal steroid injections, submucosal diathermy, surface cautery of the inferior turbinate, bipolar cautery of the turbinate, chemical cautery with agents such as silver nitrate, outfracture of the turbinate, submucosal resection of the inferior turbinate, partial inferior turbinectomy, and endoscopic partial inferior turbinectomy with a powered microcutting instrument.
Different methods of endoscopic resections (mucosal and submucosal resections) are widely used and some resections with elastic band ligation have been reported [17].
