Benign prostate hyperplasia (also known as BPH or “enlarged prostate”) is a common condition in men over 40 years old. When the prostate grows larger, it may cause symptoms such as frequent urination, difficulty urinating, weak urine stream or decreased bladder control.
A novel interventional radiology procedure called prostate artery embolization (PAE) is offered by the prostate artery embolization specialists at Synergy Vascular and Interventional. PAE is a minimally invasive, non-surgical, and FDA-approved alternative to TURP for treating enlarged prostates. PAE can be performed at any of Synergy Vascular and Interventional’s 10 Houston-area partner locations to decrease the size of the overgrown prostate gland. Tiny microspheres are injected via a small catheter into the arteries that supply the prostate, reducing blood flow to the gland and causing it to shrink in size. PAE has been shown to be safe and clinically effective; with faster recovery, lower risk of infection and fewer side effects than other procedures.
