About the Surgery

Prostatic artery embolization (PAE) is a minimally invasive treatment that helps improve lower urinary tract symptoms caused by Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).
BPH is a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland and is the most common benign tumour found in men above 50 years.
The PAE procedure is performed by using X-rays and other advanced imaging to see inside the body and treat conditions without surgery.

  • PAE is performed through a small catheter inserted by your interventional radiologist into the artery in your wrist or groin. The interventional radiologist will then guide the catheter into the vessels that supply blood to your prostate.
  • An arteriogram (an X-ray in which dye is injected into the blood vessels) is done to map the blood vessels feeding your prostate.
  • Tiny round microspheres (particles) are injected through the catheter and into the blood vessels that feed your prostate to reduce its blood supply.

  • Following this procedure the prostate will begin to shrink, relieving and improving symptoms usually within days of the procedure.
