Publication of my new paper on surgical technique with the GreenLight laser for BPH in the World Journal of Urology

At last my paper on new surgical techniques with the GreenLight laser for the treatment of BPH has been published at the World Journal of Urology. It can be downloaded for free as I decided to publish it with "open access" which means that everybody can see it without cost.

I am happy and proud to have described these techniques and to be able to share them with my colleagues around the world. It has been a five-year work of continuous learning and improvement and much effort, but finally there it is. It would not have been possible without the help of my nurse, Vanesa Cuadros and my team in Madrid, nor without having worked at Hill Clinic in Sofia, Bulgaria, for the last five years. I am deeply grateful to all of them.

We developed some drawings for this publication, describing three surgical techniques, from simpler to more complex, that allow the surgeon to improve his results and to learn step by step until he can perform the En Bloc enucleation technique.

This is the graphical description of the anatomic vaporization.

This is the graphical description of the vapo-enucleation or median lobe enucleation.

 This is the graphical description of the En bloc enucleation.

And these are images of prostatic transrectal ultrasound (before and after the operation) that demonstrates the excellent removal of adenomatous tissue obtained with these techniques.

I hope my colleagues find it useful and that these surgical techniques will help them obtain better results with their patients.

Congratulations on your efforts. The time, energy and heartache you have put into this work would put many PhD theses to shame.
