An Overview of Minimally Invasive Prostate Artery Embolization at Mount Sinai

An Overview of Minimally Invasive Prostate Artery Embolization at Mount Sinai

Mount Sinai is at the cutting edge of interventional radiology. This short video provides an excellent overview of PAE using the radial artery as an access point to block blood flow to the prostatic arteries, resulting in a reduction in the size of the prostate over time. The patient leaves several hours after the procedure is completed with mild pain generally controlled with over-the-counter analgesics. 80% of patients have a radically positive response to PAE.
