hturner12,
No, not really, but PRT could stand for the phrase "Prostate Reduction Therapy" as that phrase seems to pop up fairly often. That acronym might be appropriate for that and would include both Rezum and urolift as well as TURP and TUIP. Unfortunately, I can't find the acronym being used that way anywhere. However, I most certainly can't find PRP being used for Prostate Reduction Procedure anywhere. PRP is found being used for Platelet Rich Plasma fairly easily and appears to be an acronym accepted for that use. I certainly don't care what the acronym is used on this site but your use might cause a small amount of confusion.

Glad to do it, Larry. Now if we could just get a link to the list added to the page banners so it's always visible, or maybe added to the Quick Links dropdown...
