What is PAE?

Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE) is a minimally invasive treatment to reduce the enlarged prostate in men. It is used to treat Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. It is done by embolizing the arteries which supply blood to the enlarged prostate, thus reducing its size and relieving urinary flow problems

Non- Surgical Treatment for enlarged prostate

Minimally Invasive– PAE is a minimally invasive procedure.It does not require major surgery

Non-Surgical– Unlike traditional surgical treatments such as TURP, TUNA etc., PAE does not involve cutting or removal of tissue from the prostate gland

Reduced Risk of Side Effects– PAE may have a lower risk of side effects like sexual dysfunction and urinary incontinence compared to some surgical options

Day care procedure -PAE is often done on an outpatient basis and mostly does not require stay

Tailored Approach– PAE can be tailored to specific prostate size and anatomy which makes it suitable for a wide range of cases.

Alternative for HighRisk Patients– PAE is an option for patients who are not suitable candidates for surgery due to various health reasons.

Long-Term Results– Studies tell us that PAE can offer long-term improvement in BPH symptoms.

PAE vs Traditional Prostate Surgery

Minimized Bleeding– It reduces the risk of bleeding which is the common concern with surgical procedure

Preservation of Tissue- PAE preserves prostate tissue thus leading to fewer side effects compared to surgical treatments that involve tissue removal

Reduced Risk of Sexual Dysfunction-PAE aims to minimize the risk of sexual dysfunction. This is a common side effect of other surgical treatment like TURP.

Day Care Procedure-PAE is performed on an outpatient basis thus allowing for a shorter hospital stay or even same-day hospital discharge

Minimal Scarring– Since PAE is done through a catheter inserted in the groin, leading to minimal scarring

Fewer Complications– PAE is associated with a lower risk of complications compared to other surgical options.

Quick Recovery: Patients after PAE procedure experience faster recovery and can return to normal activities in a day

Option for High-Risk Patients– PAE may be a suitable option for patients who are at higher risk for complications with traditional surgery.

Advanced Treatment for Prostate Enlargement - Procedure flow

Patient Preparation : Patients are typically asked to fast for a few hours before the procedure.

Anaesthesia:Local anaesthesia is administered to numb the area near the groin.

Catheter Placement :A catheter (a thin, flexible tube) is inserted into a artery in the groin or wrist.

Artery Mapping : Contrast dye is injected through the catheter and X-ray imaging is used to visualize thevessels that supply blood to the prostate

Identifying Prostate Arteries :The interventional radiologist identifies the arteries that supply blood to the prostate.

Embolization : Tiny embolic agents are injected through the catheter into the prostate arteries These particles reduce the blood flow to the prostate leading to its shrinkage.

Monitoring :Continuous X-ray monitoring is done ensures that the embolic agents are correctly placed and effectively block the targeted arteries.

Recovery: Patients are monitored in a recovery area for a few hours to ensure stability. Most patients can go home on the same day or the following day.

Relief from BPH Symptoms:  Over a short period of time, the reduced blood flow to the prostate leads to symptom relief in patients.
