What happens during prostatic artery embolization?
Prostate Artery Embolization presents a groundbreaking alternative between invasive surgical procedures and less effective conservative therapies. During the PAE procedure, we use state-of-the-art imaging to guide tiny catheters through the blood vessels, delivering embolic agents directly to the arteries that supply the enlarged prostate. By doing so, the blood flow to the prostate is reduced, leading to its shrinkage and alleviating the troublesome urinary symptoms associated with BPH.
Compared to traditional surgery, this minimally invasive approach results in minimal blood loss, reduced risk of complications, and a quicker recovery time. Unlike conservative treatments, PAE provides long-lasting relief without the need for continuous medication. Moreover, patients often experience a rapid improvement in symptoms, allowing them to resume their daily activities sooner.
