TUIP is effective in men with prostates smaller than 30 millilitres who do not suffer from severe obstruction. TUIP is recommended when you present symptoms despite taking adequate drug treatment.
During TUIP, the doctor cuts into the prostate through the bladder neck with a resectoscope to improve the flow of urine. After the operation, a catheter is placed in your bladder to drain urine. The catheter is also used to continuously flush your bladder and urethra with a sterile solution to prevent blood clots.
