The UroLift® system is a revolutionary treatment that offers a rapid and lasting relief of the bothersome urinary symptoms associated with BPH. UroLift®, whose efficacy and safety have been tested clinically, can improve symptoms between 3 and 4 times more than drugs. In addition, patients can return to their normal activities within a few days after the procedure.
The only treatment for BPH in which part of the prostate is not removed, without any adverse effects on the sexual function (preserving both erection and ejaculation) and achieving improvement in symptoms.
How does the UroLift® system work?
The least invasive surgical technique to treat the symptoms of benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) offers minimal surgical risks because the enlarged prostate tissue is retracted or compressed using tiny anchors, without cuts, resection of the prostate tissue or heat, thus avoiding, in virtually all cases possible, important side effects for many patients such as retrograde ejaculation, urinary incontinence or the need to place a bag to urinate coupled with a catheter. This simple technique allows for return to normal life in 24h.
The small UroLift implant is manufactured with implantable materials of common use. Generally 4 to 5 implants are used per patient.
