Objective. The purpose of research is a comparative evaluation of the results of prostate bipolar vasoresection using a variety of electrosurgical units. Methods. 34 patients (study group) was performed bipolar vasoresection on Thunderbeat platform, and 40 (control group) – with UES-40 Electrosurgical Unit. Results. The operative time was 62±2,8 min for main group and 79±2,9 min for the control one. Saline flow during operation amounted to 14.7±0.7 and 19.4±0.9 L, respectively. The volume intraoperative blood loss in the study group was 44.9±3.1 ml (15 to 85 ml) in control - 76.3±7.6 mL (20 to 200 ml). Conclusions. The use of modern electrosurgical systems can significantly facilitate the surgeon's work and protects the patient from different electro-complications. In our experience, the use of advanced "smart" bipolar electrosurgical unit brought prostate vasoresection to a new level.
