PROSTATIC ARTERY EMBOLIZATION
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.
PROGREAT ALPHATM 2.0FR Microcatherter
Designed with large 0.019" inner lumen to enhance access to small peripheral vessels and confidently deliver embolotherapy.2-3
GLIDEWIRE® GT Super-Selective Hydrophilic Coated Guidewire
Available in 0.016" and 0.018" and a variety of tip shapes to help navigate and select even the most acutely angled vessels.

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
AZUR® CX Peripheral Coil System
Offering a unique cross-sectional coverage, AZUR® CX provides a stable and permanent platform for small vessel embolization. AZUR® CX is engineered with Hydrogel, creating a solid core when expanded for a stable, non-absorbable mechanical occlusion.6-9
