Laser therapy system treats benign prostatic hyperplasia and enlarged prostate

June 11, 2010
American Medical Systems recently launched its GreenLight XPS (Xcelerated Performance System) for laser treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate.

American Medical Systems (AMS; Minnetonka, MN) recently launched its GreenLight XPS (Xcelerated Performance System) for laser treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate. Built upon the technology and performance of AMS' GreenLight PV and HPS laser systems, the GreenLight XPS offers enhanced treatment efficiency with extended fiber longevity and improved coagulation capabilities. GreenLight has proven to deliver results equivalent to transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), and significantly improves vaporization efficiency, leading to a reduction in treatment time without impacting the depth of tissue removal or coagulation. The XPS system features FiberLife, an automatic safety feature that decreases fiber-related failures by up to 90 percent, resulting in increased longevity and enabling the treatment of glands larger than 100 g with a single fiber.
