MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Si el medicamento no alivia sus síntomas, su médico podría recomendarle un procedimiento quirúrgico denominado resección transuretral de la próstata, o RTUP. Durante este procedimiento, su cirujano le insertará un instrumento denominado cistoscopio a través de la uretra para llegar a la próstata. Luego, se inserta una herramienta de cable denominada receptoscopio a través del cistoscopio para recortar el tejido y ensanchar la uretra. Otras variaciones mínimamente invasivas de este tipo de procedimiento utilizan láseres, microondas, ondas de radio o energía eléctrica de herramientas insertadas a través de la cistoscopia para eliminar una parte o toda la glándula prostática.
