Holmium Laser - Core Through Urethrotomy (Nephrology and Urology)
Body Area: Male Specific
Body Parts: Genitals
Symptoms: Difficulty Urinating
Holmium laser core- through urethrotomy, also known as HolCTU, treats traumatic obliterative strictures of the urethra and enlarged prostate problems. It uses laser energy and is easier to recover from than many alternatives. It’s generally reliable but is a newer procedure and in some cases has not permanently stopped symptoms of an enlarged prostate. It’s generally less effective than more painful or serious procedures for the same problems.
