If you've just been given a diagnosis of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) by your doctor, you may be looking into a range of treatment options. 

BPH affects millions of men each year, and a number of treatments are available, including Prostate Arterial Embolization (PAE). 

PAE provides an advantage when compared to other treatments for BPH because it generally does not cause sexual or urinary side effects, a major concern for many men.

As men get older, it’s typical that their prostate gland becomes larger. It’s a condition known as benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). 

Don’t worry; BPH isn’t cancer but often it affects men’s lives in some unpleasant ways. Most evident is the need to urinate often. At it’s most extreme, these urination urges keep men awake at night, urinating every hour while depriving them of much needed sleep. 

Imagine living like that day after day. 

Thankfully, Sinai Diagnostics offers the most advanced, minimally invasive, and pain–free BPH treatment available. It’s called prostate Artery Embolization (PAE) and unlike previously trusted methodologies, it’s entirely effective and the most long-lasting option available. 

Constantly urinating throughout the night? Perhaps your prostate’s not right

Prostate Arterial Embolization (PAE) is the only effective non-surgical treatment method to cure prostate adenomas, exclusively offered in New York by 

Prostate Care NYC at Sinai Diagnostics.

PAE is a newer, minimally invasive procedure that can be used to treat BPH on an outpatient basis. This safe and effective non-surgical treatment for enlarged prostate is being used by a growing number of physicians. Boasting a success rate of greater than 85 percent, the PAE process begins with an ultrasound or MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan. The scan is used to develop an image of the blood flow to your prostate. Next, a clinician will directly access the blood supply to the prostate by making a percutaneous puncture and inserting a catheter into the groin's prostate artery.

Embosphere microspheres, tiny particles developed to block off blood flow to the prostate, are then introduced into the artery. From beginning to end, the entire procedure takes just about one and one-half hours, with a range from 25 to 185 minutes, without need for general anesthesia, without blood loss or injury to the prostate gland. 

What is Prostate Arterial Embolization (PAE)?

How is the procedure performed?

While the procedure is being performed, a small, thin catheter will be inserted into an artery on the right side of the groin area, to the arteries that supply blood flow to the prostate. This catheter will be used to deliver the small Embosphere microparticles, decreasing blood flow to the prostate. By reducing the blood flow to the gland, its size and the related symptoms of enlarged prostate will be reduced.

In general, this procedure is a one-day outpatient process and you will be discharged from the clinic within several hours of your PAE treatment. A catheter will not be placed via the penis.

During the procedure, patients will receive a sedative medication that produces a state known as "twilight sleep." You will not receive general anesthesia, and the procedure is not painful.

What are the most common symptoms of enlarged prostate?

Enlarged prostate, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is a condition experienced by many men. Some of the most frequently experienced symptoms of BPH include:

  • Sudden urination accompanied by urgent need
  • Frequent nighttime urination
  • Frequently needing to urinate, but producing a small amount of urine only
  • Interrupted or hesitant flow of urine
  • Leaking or dribbling during urination
  • Weak flow of urine
  • A feeling of fullness in the bladder following urination
  • The need to rush to the bathroom due to urinary urges
  • Pain during urination
  • Complete obstruction of urination in severe cases

If you are experiencing these symptoms, you may want to speak to your physician about BPH. Safe, effective treatments are available that will provide relief for your symptoms while preserving sexual and urinary function and health.
