PAE Treatment for BPH in Peoria, AZ

Prostate Artery Embolization is a minimally invasive procedure that treats BPH and other urinary conditions in men. By inserting a catheter into the prostatic arteries, we release embolic particles that block the blood flow to enlarged prostate glands so they shrink. The result is often better than surgery.

Dr. Rami UFE Specialist in Peoria, Arizona
DVVI is a highly certified and credentialed medical center specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of vein and vascular disorders. PAE is one of our exclusive embolization methods that effectively treats Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH) and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). In comparison to surgical options, PAE allows patients to discard prostate medications while avoiding erectile or ejaculatory side effects. Most patients actually report an increase in sexual function. Once the embolic agents are injected into the prostatic artery, you can expect relief from common BPH symptoms in as little as 2 weeks:

Common BPH Symptoms

  • Increased Urination Frequency
  • Nocturia- frequent urination at night
  • Incontinence/Urinary Retention
  • Urgent Urination and Dribbling

When to Avoid PAE

  • When there’s a possible diagnosis of prostate cancer.
  • When the prostate or pelvic region is infected or inflamed.
  • If you’ve experienced allergic reactions to iodine.

What to Expect Leading up to the PAE Procedure

Need to schedule an evaluation for a PAE procedure at our vascular center in Peoria, Arizona? Prior to your initial consultation, we ask that you allocate all imaging files and medical records that are relevant to your prostate condition. Upon arrival, you can expect a detailed history review followed by a thorough physical exam. If imaging has not been obtained, an ultrasound, bloodwork, a CT scan or MRI will be ordered to fully assess the size and volume of your prostate. During your next visit, we review your imaging findings and discuss the details of BPH Embolization. If you decide that treating BPH with PAE is right for you, then we’ll plan next steps and schedule the procedure at our endovascular surgical center.
