Promising new surgical option for BPH

For those that have to resort to surgery as a last resort for an enlarged prostate gland (BPH) when all else has failed, there is a promising new option that is much less invasive which seems to offer promising results.

The new technique blocks blood flow to the prostate gland. A catheter is inserted into the femoral artery and guided to the prostate artery on both sides of the enlarged gland. The catheter places tiny plastic beads into the artery which block blood flow. This results in the prostate gland shrinking.

Men who have had the treatment report fewer visits to the toilet, especially at night.

This new method of treating an enlarged prostate gland surgically is known as prostatic artery embolization (PAE) and is far less invasive than other surgical options. Patients are normally released the same day.

Of course, surgery should always be considered as a last option. For those who do suffer from BPH, we recommend trying our ProstaMax first. This beta-sitosterol based supplement has been shown to be highly effective in shrinking an enlarged prostate gland.
