Abstract To assess the residual power delivered at the tip of a high-power (80 W) potassium-titanyl-phosphate (KTP) laser (80 W Green Light PV(TM), Laserscope(®); American Medical Systems, Minnetonka, MN, USA) at the end of a photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP) procedure, as well as the deflection angle of the laser beam.
