Meanwhile, senior consultant urologist and head of the Department of Urology, Selayang Hospital, Dato Dr Rohan Malek said patients with BPH, who enlisted at the program, were treated with transurethal resection of the prostate (TURP), an urological operation. It is performed by visualising the prostate through the urethra and removing tissue by electrocautery or sharp dissection. This procedure is done with spinal or general anaesthetic. A triple lumen catheter is inserted through the urethra to irrigate and drain the bladder after the surgical procedure is completed, he said. Speaking to reporters at the carnival, he said this treatment is considered the most effective for BPH with excellent recovery from the treatment in 80 to 90 percent of the patients.
