The procedure takes slightly longer than a TURP and requires specialist training.
Apart from this and the risk of infection that accompanies any operation or invasive procedure,the only significant side-effect is the near certainty that normal ejaculation will cease.This is because the contraction that occurs during orgasm may not completely block the entrance to the bladder once some tissue has been removed,and the semen will flow back into the bladder (retrograde or dry ejaculation) rather than out through the penis.This is not harmful,but it does mean that future fertility is greatly reduced.The procedure does not generally affect erectile function or continence,although the urinary symptoms may take a few weeks to settle down afterwards.
