PVP session in Valencia

This morning we have operated two patients at the General Hospital in Valencia, in a training seminar on PVP (Photoselective Vaporization of the Prostate) laser prostatectomy. Both surgeries were uneventful, as usual. Patients will be able to return to normal life in two or three days. We had a technical problem, as the laser system was just installed, the light went off twice during the first operation, so we had to wait for some minutes before continuing. Luckily, this operation does not cause bleeding, so this small problem did not have any negative consequence for the patient. We used the time to discuss some technical aspects of the operation with those attending the seminar. Then I came back to Madrid to see my patients. This week is being a little bit hectic.
