HoLEP employs a combination of laser energies and blunt dissection to "peel out" the problematic tissue starting from the edge of the prostatic capsule and moving around the periphery, mimicking what happens in open surgery but without the incisions, Dr.
In cases where ultrasonography may not be available immediately, percutaneous and blunt dissection methods usually provide better control of the tube placement and are the preferred approaches for blind CTI.[1],[2] The trocar puncture technique is associated with a greater risk of iatrogenic injury and is thereby not a preferred procedure.[1],[3],[4] During blunt dissection, the practitioner should perform a finger sweep within the thoracic cavity to confirm pulmonary adhesion to the chest wall before introducing the chest tube.
Hysteroscope was inserted into the uterine cavity alongside the endometrium line finally and hysteroscope was used to perform pushing and blunt dissection in the uterine cavity, so that the filmy adhesions could be separated completely, the uterine cavity came back to normal form and the whole uterine cavity and openings of the bilateral fallopian tubes could be observed [Figure 1].
Blunt dissection was used to gently dissect the capsule away from the coelomic muscle and to open the capsule.
