An Enlarged Prostate

Can be treated with GreenLight Laser Therapy

前列腺肿大可以通过绿光雷射療法对治

 

XYZ Hospital is the only hospital in Singapore installed with GreenLight Laser Therapy machine. With more than 160 procedures performed at our hospital, the GreenLight procedure offers freedom from enlarged prostate symptoms.

某某醫院是新加坡唯一的一家安装了绿光(GreenLight)雷射治療機的医院。在我們的醫院進行的160多道工序中,绿光程序移除了前列腺肿大的症狀。

 

Prostate enlargement is inevitable to most men at some time in their lives. When the prostate gland enlarges, it makes it hard for them to urinate.

前列腺腫大在大多數男人的生命中的某个时段是无可避免的。當前列腺腺體增大,小便就会有困难。

 

For years, the best treatment options were medications or various procedures using microwaves, radiofrequency waves or surgical techniques to get ride of excess prostate tissue. The most common surgical procedure, called transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), typically results in a 2-3 days hospital stay and can lead to considerable bleeding.

多年來,最好的治療方案是藥物或者使用微波,射頻波或手術技巧的各種程序去移除多餘的前列腺肌肉組織。最常見的手術叫做尿道切除前列腺手术(TURP),通常要住院2-3天,也有可能導致大量出血。

 

GreenLight Therapy is different. It is a minimally invasive treatment option that combines the effectiveness of the traditional TURP with fewer side effects. The treatment is suitable for almost all patients with prostate enlargement who require surgery or are not responding to medical (drugs) therapy.

绿光(GreenLight)的治療法就很不一样。这是一種最少侵入性的治療方案,結合了傳統的TURP手術的效用,副作用也少。这种治療办法適用於幾乎所有患有前列腺腫大,需要手術或对药物療程沒有反应的患者。

 

Most patients can return home a few hours after the procedure, and get back to normal, non-strenuous activities within days.

手術後幾個小時,多數患者就可以回家,在幾天內回复正常和不劇烈的活動。

 

The advantages of this treatment include:

這種治療方法的優點有:

  • Rapid urine flow improvement.

 迅速改善尿流。

  • Quick return to normal activities.

 快速恢復正常活動。

  • Virtually bloodless procedure.

 幾乎不流血的過程。

  • Less than 1 per cent reported cases of erectile dysfunction.

 少过1%勃起功能障礙的案例。

  • Less than 24 hours of catheterization in most cases.

 在大多數情況下,导管插入少过24的小時。

  • Outpatient procedure in otherwise healthy patients.

 健康的患者只需門診程序即可。

  • Long-lasting symptom relief.

 長期症狀得到緩解。

Snoring Surgery

Snoring Surgery  打鼾手術

 

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?  什么是阻塞性呼吸暫停的睡眠?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is stoppages in breathing during sleep due to obstruction of the upper airway. The obstruction of the airway can be due to a blocked now, thick palate, big tonsils/adenoids, and/or a big tongue.

阻塞性呼吸暫停的睡眠是由於睡眠时上呼吸道梗阻导致的呼吸停頓现象。呼吸道的阻塞可能是因为鼻腔受阻,上颚变厚,扁桃體/腺樣體增大亦或有大舌头。

 

What is Snoring?  什么打鼾

Snoring is due to the vibration of the tissues in the mouth and oral cavity (namely the soft palate, uvula, base of tongue and other soft tissues). Snoring implies an increased resistance to the inflow of air during breathing at the level of the upper airways. Snoring may arise from sinus problems, palate thickness and a big tongue.

打鼾是由於嘴巴和口腔内的肌肉组织(即軟颚,小舌,舌底和其他軟組織)的振動造成的。打鼾意味著上呼吸道的部份在呼吸时更加抗拒空氣的流入。打鼾也有可能是因为鼻窦,上颚厚度和大舌頭导致的问题。

 

What is Snoring / Sleep Apnea Surgery?  什麼是打鼾/睡眠呼吸暫停手術?

These comprise of surgery to the nose, palate and/or tongue.

手術的部份包括鼻子,上颚亦或舌頭。

 

Nose  鼻子

The nose is physiologically essential in breathing, any swelling within the nose needs to be corrected in order for normal breathing to be restored.

鼻子是呼吸的基本生理构造,任何鼻腔内的腫脹都需要糾正以便恢復正常的呼吸。

Nose surgery also helps reduce snoring and obstructive sleep apnea to a good extent (especially if done together with other procedures, like palate or tongue surgery).

鼻子手術也有助於減輕打鼾和阻塞性呼吸暫停的睡眠到某一个良好的程度(特別是跟其他手术如上颚或舌頭的程序一起进行)。

Type of nose surgery depends on the pathology of the nose, in general, a crooked nose septum will be corrected and enlarged sinus turbinates can be reduced.

鼻子手術的類型取決於鼻子的病理,一般上,弯曲的鼻腔隔膜会被矫正,肿大的鼻竇鼻甲可以缩小。

Different methods are available (not all are mentioned here). One example would be the radiofrequency of the inferior sinus turbinates (this procedure is simple, minimal pain, quick and has minimal side-effects).

有不同的方法可用(这里不尽述)。譬如劣質鼻窦鼻甲的射频疗法(這個過程簡單快速,疼痛最小,副作用也最少)。

 

Palate  上颚

Palate surgery is essential to reduce snoring and enlarge the oral airway (this may include a tonsillectomy if the tonsils are enlarged). Approximately 70% of most snoring arise from the palate. Surgery to the palate will reduce snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

上颚手術是基本的,可以減少打鼾和擴大口腔呼吸道(如果扁桃體擴大就有可能包括扁桃體切除術,)。大约70%的打鼾问题出自上颚。上颚的手術將減少打鼾和阻塞性睡眠时的呼吸暫停现象。

There are different types of palate surgery available (variations depend on the palate anatomy) (not all are mentioned here).

这里也有几种不同的上颚手術可用(因上腭的骨形结构而定)(这里不尽述)。

In general, reconstruction of the palate is needed to expand and enlarge the oral cavity airway. The Pang’s Expansion Pharyngoplasty has been shown to improve snoring and sleep apnea in over 80% of patients.

一般上,重建上腭时需要擴大和张大口腔的呼吸道。龐氏擴咽成形术已经在超過80%的患者身上证明有改善打鼾及睡眠呼吸暫停的现象。

 

Tongue  舌頭

Patients with big tongues and small oral cavities will inevitably have narrow airways that obstruct during their sleep leading to obstructive sleep apnea.

大舌头以及口腔呼吸道小的患者难免会有狭窄的呼吸道容易造成阻塞,導致睡眠时的阻塞性呼吸暫停现象。

These patients might need to have some form of tongue volume reduction (e.g. radiofrequency reduction) or tongue suspension suture (to support the tongue and prevent it from falling backwards during sleep).

這些患者可能需要有某種形式的缩小舌头体积(如射頻的缩小法)或者懸吊舌头的縫合(用来支撑舌頭防止它在睡眠时向後仰)。

There are different types of tongue surgery (not all are mentioned here).

舌头手术也分好几种(这里不尽述)。
