Prostate Artery Embolization at Mount Sinai

Prostate Artery Embolization at Mount Sinai

This 65-year-old patient with urinary symptoms associated with BPH and reported low quality of life had a successful PAE to relieve symptoms with no sexual side effects. Dr. Fischman walks through the procedure step by step, from insertion of the catheter to use of specialized catheters and wires to reach the prostatic artery, review of the anatomy, and insertion of beads to block the flow of blood to the artery.
