Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia - New Treatment - Conclusion

Embolization of the prostatic arteries in patients with symptomatic BPH is a minimally invasive and feasible procedure.
It is performed percuntaneously, under local anesthesia, without scar, with short hospitalization of 4-8 hours and short recovery.
It has low morbidity and good outcomes at 1, 3 , 6, 12,18 months, 24 and 30 months, without sexual dysfunction and even improvement in sexual function in some patients.
It may be the gold standard for some patients particulary those with very large prostate over 100cc, or patients under anticoagulant or antiplatet drugs.
