As the prostate enlarges, it can narrow and partially obstruct the urethra, causing lower urinary tract symptoms such as:

  • Increased urinary frequency, urgency and pain when urinating.

  • Urinary incontinence, which can range from some leaks to complete loss of bladder control.

  • Irritation when urinating.


Procedure: Prostatic embolization reduces the volume of the prostate, which is enlarged in hyperplasia, causing obstructive problems when urinating. It consists of catheterization of the prostate arteries, accessing them through the femoral or radial route, with the aim of permanently plugging or embolizing them. It achieves results comparable to surgery, is performed on an outpatient basis and has fewer complications than any surgical technique.
