What is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia?
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as a benign prostatic hypertrophy, is the noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. While BPH is usually not a severe medical issue, it causes discomfort, irritation, pain, and frustration. Though some men experience BPH in their thirties, it typically affects men at age 50 and above. When the prostate gland grows, it leads to a compression of the urethra, ultimately impeding the flow of urine. BPH sufferers can also experience urinary tract infections or even complete blockage of the urethra. Since BPH is associated with the aging process in men, almost half of all men over 75 years old exhibit some symptoms.
Some other BPH symptoms are:
- Difficulty beginning and ending a urine stream
- Frequently feeling like you need to urinate
- A sense that your bladder is never completely emptied after urinating
If you experience some of these symptoms, contact Advuro to set up an appointment in order to find out if you have BPH.
What is the UroLift® System?
The UroLift® System is designed to treat lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It opens the urethra directly by retracting the obstructing prostatic lobes without cutting, heating or removing prostate tissue. The UroLift Delivery Device is inserted transurethrally through a rigid sheath under cystoscopic visualization in order to reach the targeted area of obstruction.
