This is something I just found out today.
Phew !!! 😨 I almost had a Urolift done last year, when my 2nd uro recommended it. My only problem was urinary bladder retention, that many of us have. The only thing that stopped me was my request to know before hand my prostate size and whether or not I have large median lobe. My uro declined that, saying "We'll find that out when I do Urolift."
Now looking at the study results posted above, which compares Urolift, TURP, and HolEp respectively, indicates that Urolift does practically nothing for retention, my Urolift would have ended in a failure. My uro was either ignorant or in great need to pay for his yatch.
Hope this helps others with retention and are planning to have Urolift. Hank
