Patient reports following prostate artery embolisation (PAE) for treating enlarged prostate

In this series Total Health continues to receive detailed feedback from patients who understand the necessity to share their experiences for the benefits of others.

Full details of the minimally invasive procedure for treating enlarged prostate can found read here - The benefits of prostate artery embolisation as a treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia or enlarged prostate 

Although in most cases the patients have been happy for us to provide their names, we have nonetheless only used their initials - in the interest of confidentiality. This feedback is from patients who  had varying degrees of symptomatic severity, ranging from milder to total urinary retention. Following urological assessment they were all treated for an enlarged prostate using advanced prostate artery embolisation (PAE). The minimally invasive procedure was performed by pioneering interventional radiologist, Dr Nigel Hacking.

The patient had been suffering from severe lower urinary tractsymptoms (LUTS) caused by an enlarged prostate. This detailed feedback is intended for the benefit of anyone else who might also be suffering from prostate symptoms and is seeking a preferred treatment option.
