After transurethral resection, a very small percentage of patients can develop Transurethral resection syndrome (TURP syndrome).
In this work, we describe a case of intravesical explosion during TURP, followed by fatal transurethral resection syndrome, in a patient with BPH.

However, TURP can cause severe complications, including frequent need for reoperation, blood loss, and transurethral resection syndrome

There were no serious intraoperative complications, such as massive hemorrhage, which would require a transfusion or transurethral resection syndrome, and the rates of procedural complications were equally low between the 2 groups.
In the United States, the proportions of BPH-related surgery include monopolar TURP (73%); photoselective vaporization of the prostate (58%); TURIS-V (24%); bipolar TURP (20%); holmium laser ablation (18%); thulium laser ablation (4%) and laparoscopic or robotic prostatectomy (1% and 3%, respectively).[sup.10] Complications from these various procedures mainly stem from serious distress of standard TURP, such as transfusion rate, transurethral resection syndrome and even patient death from the operation.[sup.11]
