Abstract :

Prostate artery embolization (PAE) is a new treatment option for men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as an enlarged prostate gland. The procedure will help improve urinary symptoms without the risk of sexual side effects. Originally developed in Europe and South America, this procedure is now being studied in the United States. Through this lecture you will learn about BPH, have a brief review of medical and surgical treatment options, but the focus will be on this new cutting edge procedure that is minimally invasive; The benefits and risks of the procedure will be discussed along with the short and long term outcomes that are known at this time.
