Abstract

This study was conducted to assess the clinical reliability of the prostatic Urolume Wallstent for symptomatic BPH patients. One hundred patients were treated under intravenous sedation or local anesthesia. Pre- and postoperative patient evaluation included scoring of subjective symptoms, physical examination, laboratory analysis, transrectal ultrasonography, uroflowmetry with maximum flow nomograms, intravenous pyelogram and cystourethroscopy. At the long-term follow-up the vast majority of patients showed non-obstructed voiding parameters. The most frequent complications included stent malpositioning and dislocation, and persistent irritative symptomatology. The prostatic UroLume Wallstent is a safe and effective minimally invasive procedure for carefully selected BPH patients.
