PROSTATIC ARTERY EMBOLIZATION

Prostatic artery embolization (PAE) is a promising non-surgical treatment for lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Clinically shown to reduce BPH symptoms and improve quality of life, PAE has become a viable alternative to surgical procedures, with minimal risk of urinary incontinence or sexual dysfunction such as impotence and retrograde ejaculation. PAE also offers a shorter recovery time compared to surgical options and is performed via the femoral or radial artery.
