BPH is the non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate. It causes difficulties in urination and affects quality of life of millions of men around the world. It is the most common disease in aging men. Most patients start with drug therapy, that leads to side effects. Many continue to surgery, that requires hospitalization and recovery time and leads to side effects. Some other less invasive methods have been introduced, most of them with limited success so far.
Its innovative device is a metallic implant, delivered in a matter of minutes, under local anesthesia. Its device retracts the lateral lobes of the prostate and restores urine flow without inflicting any damage to the prostate tissue. Initial clinical data shows very promising results with patients who needed a permanent catheter before the procedure came off the catheter after a 10-minute procedure. And patients suffering no side effects.
- Less invasive compared to any other BPH treatment available
- The only treatment that can be delivered with a flexible delivery system (less pain)
- The only treatment that is fully reversible if needed
- Dilates the prostatic urethra without surgical incision or prostate tissue removal
