Definition


The cervico-prostatic incision is a surgical procedure consisting of an incision on the neck of the bladder at the junction between the prostate and the base of the bladder. This incision provides relief of the pressure exerted by a portion of the prostate on the channel that discharges urine (urethra). Thanks to this operation, the patient will be able to urinate normally. This procedure is done under general or local anesthesia and passes through natural channels (through the urethra); it is performed in cases of benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH, responsible for urinary discomfort.
