I've had 2 unsuccessful PAE's in the last year. both were at UNC. Still having difficulty so taking the next step. Decided on Holep over Rezum, Bi-Polar Turp. and modified laser turp.

Will let you know the results.

    You should be fine if American Uro's are as good as British ones:-) What is modified laser TURP?

    Best of luck to you mike. Holep is a good choice, almost a sure thing, and much less messy than TURP. How large is your prostate ? I understand HOLEP is for large prostates mainly. Hank
