PAE for benign prostatic hyperplasia

April 4, 2024, 17:00-18:30 CEST

Prostatic artery embolization (PAE) for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) has proven to be a safe and effective treatment, and yet it is still not being practised in many medical centres. This webinar aims to share insights on patient assessment as well as innovative techniques for addressing lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), BHP, and PAE. Practical approaches will be explored regarding patient management, pre-procedural patient consultation, PAE anatomy and techniques, post-PAE patient care, and the pivotal role of PAE in BPH treatment. Join us for this comprehensive webinar!

Learning objectives

Provide interventional radiologists with a practical understanding of how to perform patient assessment and technique, considering:

  1. The management of male LUTS and BPH, medical management, and surgical options.
  2. Required clinical information and pre-procedural exams, managing patient expectations before PAE, and indications and contraindications for PAE.
  3. Basic arterial anatomy, techniques, and materials used for PAE.
  4. Post-PAE adverse events and outcome measures, non-responders versus relapsers, and when to consider repeat PAE versus surgery.
  5. Phase II trials, phase III trials, and long-term studies, as well as guidelines on where PAE fits in the middle of all BPH treatment options.
