Approximately, 60% of men over the age of 60 and up to 80% of men overall, will eventually develop BPH with LUTS ¹. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is a condition where the prostatic tissue grows over time and obstructs the urethral lumen, leading to Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS). Common urinary symptoms associated with BPH include:
- Poor or intermittent urine stream (Weak Stream or Intermittency)
- Difficulty urinating (Straining)
- Sudden urge to urinate (Urgency)
- Waking up many times at night to urinate (Nocturia)
- Having to urinate frequently (Frequency)
- Feeling of incomplete bladder emptying (Incomplete Emptying)
Standard approaches to treat symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate include prescription medications or mechanical (surgical) treatment. Prescription Medications prescribed for BPH, such as Alpha-blockers (e.g. Doxazosin, Tamsulosin, Silodosin), 5-ARIs (e.g. Finasteride, Dutasteride), and PDE5 inhibitors (e.g. Tadalafil) are commonly associated with side effects that include sexual dysfunction, headaches, dizziness, low blood pressure, and possibly cognitive decline. Traditional surgical treatment options, including the gold standard Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP), are usually associated with complications related to the surgical procedure and/or general anesthesia (e.g.: bleeding, need for urinary catheterization, incontinence, sexual dysfunction, overnight hospital stay and a longer recovery period)1.
