Prostatic urethral lift vs prostate arterial embolization: novel nonablative strategies in the management of lower urinary tract symptoms secondary to benign prostate hyperplasia

Prostate urethral lift and prostate arterial embolization represent two evolving techniques with contrasting mechanisms of action (mechanical decompression vs angiographic embolization). Both yield relief of lower urinary tract symptoms over a period of several weeks. They display similar safety profiles with self-limiting pelvic discomfort characterizing the commonest minor adverse event. Both procedures have the potential to be carried out under local anesthesia and in the outpatient setting with suitability for patients with cardiovascular comorbidities. Neither has been found to cause degradation of sexual function. Further randomized studies are needed to delineate the formal position of these techniques in the surgical management of benign prostate hyperplasia.

Abstract

Prostate urethral lift and prostate arterial embolization represent two evolving techniques with contrasting mechanisms of action (mechanical decompression vs angiographic embolization). Both yield relief of lower urinary tract symptoms over a period of several weeks. They display similar safety profiles with self-limiting pelvic discomfort characterizing the commonest minor adverse event. Both procedures have the potential to be carried out under local anesthesia and in the outpatient setting with suitability for patients with cardiovascular comorbidities. Neither has been found to cause degradation of sexual function. Further randomized studies are needed to delineate the formal position of these techniques in the surgical management of benign prostate hyperplasia.
