A tailored BPO surgical treatment should be offered according to the patient's clinical profile, age, prostate volume, anticoagulant treatment and comorbidities, taking into account the patient's expectations, possible adverse events, outcomes and durability of each procedure.

Future technical standards in the armamentarium for BPH surgery will rely on the implementation of new technologies and insights.

There are many emerging BPO surgical procedures currently under investigation and only time will tell which procedures will become the new standard.
