A cost-minimization analysis comparing photoselective vaporisation (PVP) and transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) for the management of symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in Queensland, Australia.
Rea added, Among other key innovations, the on-site LNG storage and vaporisation facility will use a unique LNG vaporisation system, where waste heat from KPS's power station will be recovered to vaporise LNG instead of traditional ambient air fin vaporisers, making the solution more cost competitive.
Currently there are four 2 m laser surgical methods to treat BPH: vaporization (Tm: YAG vaporisation of the prostate, Thu VAP), vaporesection (Tm: YAG vaporesection, Thu VARP), vapoenucleation (Tm: YAG vapoenucleation, Thu VEP), and laser enucleation (Tm: YAG laser enucleation of the prostate, Thu LEP).
