UroLift system for relief of prostate obstruction under local anesthesia

TURP is considered the gold standard of BPH treatment; however it is related to a 20% morbidity rate (3% of incontinence, 7% stenosis and 65% ejaculatory dysfunction). As an alternative, this paper describes a minimally invasive treatment performed using simple cystoscopy under local anesthesia: Prostatic Urethral Lift (PUL).
