Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE)

At UroPartners, we're committed to providing our patients with the latest and most effective urologic care. That's why we're thrilled to announce the addition of a new service: Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE). “PAE is the latest in the armamentarium of minimally invasive prostate cancer treatments,” said UroPartners Chief medical Officer, John Cudecki, MD, FACS. “It has the added benefit of not requiring catheterization and works well on larger prostates (BPH).”

What is PAE?

PAE is a minimally invasive procedure for treating benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as an enlarged prostate. BPH is a common condition affecting many men as they age, leading to uncomfortable urinary symptoms like frequent urination, weak stream, and nighttime urgency.

How Does PAE Work?

During PAE, a skilled interventional radiologist uses imaging technology to access the arteries supplying blood to the prostate. Tiny beads are then inserted into these arteries, effectively cutting off blood flow and causing the prostate to shrink over time.

Benefits of PAE:
  • Minimally invasive: PAE is performed through a small puncture in the groin, avoiding the need for traditional open surgery.
  • Faster recovery: Compared to surgery, PAE offers a much quicker recovery time, allowing patients to return home the same day.
  • Reduced risk of side effects: PAE boasts a lower risk of complications like sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence compared to other BPH treatments.
  • Long-lasting results: Studies show PAE provides sustained relief from BPH symptoms for many years.
Who is PAE Right For?

PAE may be a suitable option for men with BPH who experience bothersome symptoms and are seeking a less invasive alternative to surgery. It's important to discuss your individual situation with a urologist at UroPartners to determine if PAE is the right choice for you.
