The main advantages of laser ablation include the effective elimination of leukoplakia, that is, of the altered mucous tissues of the bladder. As a result, the main painful symptoms realize quickly, and the patient's quality of life is noticeably improved.
Other advantages of laser ablation of bladder leukoplakia include:
• minimum level of tissue trauma. The affected areas treated by a laser beam and healthy ones remain untouched
• absence of bleeding or blood in the urine, since the laser provides effective coagulation (cauterization) of the tissues
• impact on the cause of leukoplakia, namely a chronic infection that was present in the bladder. Laser energy leads to the death of the causative agent of the disease and eliminates the inflammatory process
• minimal risks of relapse
• short rehabilitation period. As a rule, you can return to your everyday life on the day of the procedure or the next day. A complete restoration of the bladder (cleansing of its mucous membranes) occurs in a month, while with other types of surgical operations - after 5-6 months.
