Summary form only given. Most urologists still think that a fundamental treatment method for the BPH (benign prostatic hyperplasia) is the TUR (transurethral resection). However, a group of urologists and medical engineers have developed a variety of equipment that were designed to cover the demerits of the TUR based on the concept of thermotherapy. Though much of the equipment has already become obsolete, the procedure using a laser to ablate the prostate developed in the 1990s has been improved and has become well-known among urologists.
