MWR is an expert 74 year old patient who has received prostate artery embolisation (PAE) for an enlarged prostate caused by benign prostatic hypertrophy (PBH).

The PAE minimally invasive  procedure was conducted by interventional radiologist, Dr Nigel Hacking at Spire Hospital Southampton.

Following PAE treatment, he says, "The improvement has been dramatic. The flow rate has reduced to a controllable stream rather than a torrent and I have had no leakages worth commenting on, no more trouser and underpants smelling of urine. I can go for much longer periods without the urgency to urinate. I wake in the night at most once to relieve myself and now get a good night’s sleep of 7-8 hours. My total IPPS score now is 4. The embolisation thanks to the skill of Dr Hacking has been a total success. I am still living in a period of post embolisation elation."
