Best Transurethral Resection and Laser Ablation Procedure

Transurethral resection and laser ablation are two commonly used methods for treating bladder tumors.TX hospitals performs best laser treatments in Hyderabad.

Here are the step-by-step details of each procedure:

Transurethral resection (TUR) of bladder tumors:

  1. Preparation: The patient is placed under general anesthesia or spinal anesthesia, and a cystoscope is inserted through the urethra into the bladder.
  2. Identification of tumor: The bladder is then inspected for tumors using the cystoscope. Once the tumor is located, a wire loop is inserted through the cystoscope to remove the tumor.
  3. Resection of tumor: The wire loop is then used to cut the tumor into small pieces, which are removed from the bladder. The tissue samples are sent to a laboratory for examination to determine if the tumor is cancerous or benign.
  4. Hemostasis: Once the tumor is removed, a high-frequency electrical current is used to cauterize the area to prevent bleeding.
  5. Post-procedure care: A catheter is inserted into the bladder to drain urine, and the patient is monitored for any complications.

Laser ablation of bladder tumors:

  1. Preparation: The patient is placed under general anesthesia or spinal anesthesia, and a cystoscope is inserted through the urethra into the bladder.
  2. Identification of tumor: The bladder is then inspected for tumors using the cystoscope. Once the tumor is located, a laser fiber is inserted through the cystoscope.
  3. Ablation of tumor: The laser is then used to heat and destroy the tumor. The laser energy is absorbed by the tumor tissue, causing it to vaporize.
  4. Hemostasis: Once the tumor is ablated, a high-frequency electrical current is used to cauterize the area to prevent bleeding.
  5. Post-procedure care: A catheter is inserted into the bladder to drain urine, and the patient is monitored for any complications.  Both TUR and laser ablation of bladder tumors have their advantages and disadvantages. TUR is the gold standard treatment for bladder tumors, and it allows for a more precise removal of tumors. However, laser ablation has been shown to have similar efficacy as TUR, but with fewer complications and a shorter hospital stay. Ultimately, the choice of procedure will depend on the patient’s specific condition. Visit TX Hospitals for successful for Transurethral resection and laser ablation procedures
