Monopolar transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is the standard procedure for the surgical treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia which is the most common non-malignant disorder of the prostate, affecting over 50% of the elderly male population. Monopolar TURP was recently challenged by bipolar TURP, which uses normal saline as an irrigant, thus avoiding the need for glycine or distilled water irrigation and its associated complications
