Postoperative course was complicated by transurethral resection syndrome.
Key Words: Transurethral resection, Bladder explosion, Transurethral resection syndrome, Prevention
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.
In the present case, bladder perforation during bipolar TURP was followed by the onset of a transurethral resection syndrome that caused the death of patient.
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.
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.
