Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE)

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) — also called prostate gland enlargement — is a common condition as men get older. PAE offers an outpatient option for BPH that is less invasive and less painful. Symptoms of BPH include:

  • Difficulty starting or maintaining urination
  • Urinating more than 6-8x per day
  • Waking at night to urinate
  • Sensation of your bladder not emptying
  • Having sudden strong urges to urinate

Benefits

PAE offers an outpatient option for BPH that is less invasive and less painful. Benefits include:

  • Shorter recovery time when compared to regular surgery

  • Completed on an outpatient basis

  • Does not require tissue removal or manipulation through the urethra, which decreases the risk of impotence and incontinence associated with surgical treatment

It takes time for the prostate to shrink, the majority of PAE patients will see improvement from the procedure at earliest around 3-4 weeks after the procedure, with maximum improvement 3-6 months post procedure.
