The present treatment of the subacute abatteric prostatitis, prostatodinia, prostatosis (the most common prostatic flogistic diseases) is represented by the transrectal applications of infrared Laser. The concrete opportunity of applying such an energy directly to the prostate in cases of flogistic diseases--a very frequent pathology treated in many different and controversial ways--is a stimulating therapeutical method which we tested and that we presently use in our clinics. The thanks to the realization of an high technology equipment, easy to handle, cheap, safe, perfectly suitable, formed by a new infrared Laser probe, transrectal, atermical, made by a optical fibre, which we present. Micturition, ejaculation, fertility may draw a relevant improvement, provided that the same treatment is performed after a specific medical diagnosis and following a strict protocol.
