LIFE™: biolitec®´s gentle laser therapy as benign prostatic hyperplasia treatment – for detailed information, please visit: info-prostata.com/en
Jena, 2.December 2013 – In Germany several million men above 50 suffer from an enlarged prostate – so-called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Even if this disorder is innocuous it can cause severe problems such as nocturia, a weak urinary stream or the impression of being unable to completely void the bladder. All this disturbs sleep and thus impedes the normal daily flow. In order to help you regain your complaint-free life, the innovative LIFE™-laser therapy by biolitec® is a specifically gentle treatment option. Especially for high-risk patients who are on anticoagulants, traditional prostatic surgery e.g. by wire loop constitute an increased risk since it frequently involves bleeding or postoperative hemorrhage. LIFE™-laser therapy deploying the two patented fibers TWISTER™ and XCAVATOR™ made by biolitec® is really an alternative.
In LIFE™-laser therapy, the laser irradiation is guided through a laterally-radiating fiber. The laser vaporizes the prostatic tissue highly precisely and thus conserves the deeper tissue. Besides fine blood vessels, prostatic tissue also contains much water. The LIFE™-laser, which acts in both of these biological substances, features the advantage of facilitating tissue vaporization and coagulation equally. As a result, accurate and efficient removal is guaranteed while postoperative bleeding is prevented. Since the laser effectively seals the tissue, water will not submerge into the blood circuit. Moreover, samples intended for histological examinations (identification of carcinomas) can be taken. Thanks to the short catheterized period required, most patients will have to stay no longer than one day at the clinic. The gentle laser therapy thus helps them regain their life quality quickly.
Moreover, patients who hold a valid health insurance will get the costs related to the in-patient BPH laser treatment reimbursed.
