PROSTATIC ARTERY EMBOLIZATION

TAKE AIM AT BPH WITH A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH

Benign prostatic hyperplasia—also called BPH—is a condition in men in which the prostate gland is enlarged and not cancerous. It can lead to lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). BPH affects about 50% of men between the ages of 51 and 60 and up to 90% of men older than 80.1

Prostatic Artery Embolization (PAE) is a minimally invasive option to treat BPH and can be performed via radial or femoral access.

TERUMO INTERVENTIONAL SYSTEMS IS EQUIPPED TO SUPPORT YOUR PAE PROCEDURES FROM ACCESS TO EMBOLIZATION TO CLOSURE

HYDROPEARL® Microspheres

Keep your patients in mind as you embolize. The unique formulation of HYDROPEARL Microspheres was exclusively developed to offer controlled and targeted embolization. HYDROPEARL Microspheres are tightly calibrated and indicated for embolization of prostatic arteries (PAE) for symptomatic BPH. This precise calibration may allow more predictable and targeted embolization.3-5
