Understanding Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

BPH is a condition where the prostate gland enlarges, pressing against the urethra. This is commonly seen in men over 50, and the severity increases with age. Common symptoms include:

  • Difficulty starting urination
  • Incomplete bladder emptying
  • Other urinary abnormalities

Diagnosis of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Diagnosis involves a visit to a healthcare provider who may conduct the following tests:

  • Blood test for PSA levels
  • Urinalysis
  • Prostate ultrasound

Treatment Options for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Treatment options vary, including lifestyle changes, medications, and surgical procedures. Surgical methods include transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP), laser surgery, and steam therapy. Each method has its advantages and is chosen based on the patient’s condition and doctor’s recommendation.

What is Water Vapor Therapy?

Water Vapor Therapy uses high-temperature steam to reduce the size of the prostate. The procedure involves inserting a scope and instruments through the urethra to reach the prostate. Steam at 103°C is injected into the prostate 6-10 times, each lasting no more than 10 seconds. The average treatment time is about 15 minutes. Post-treatment, a urinary catheter is placed for about a week to help reduce swelling.

Rezum Therapy

Rezum therapy employs high-heat steam to induce apoptosis (cell death) in the cells blocking the urinary tract, causing the prostate to shrink. This method effectively addresses the root cause of BPH, allowing normal urination.

Ideal Candidates for Rezum Therapy

  • Men aged 50 and above
  • Prostate size between 30-80 g.(from Ultrasound)
  • Ineffective results or side effects from medication
  • Ineligible for surgical procedures
  • No bladder infections
  • No penile implants

Advantages of Rezum Therapy

  • Minimal bleeding from the procedure
  • Short treatment time, no hospitalization required
  • No general anesthesia, no implants
  • Noticeable prostate size reduction within 6 months
  • Minor impact on sexual function
  • No need for repeat treatment within 5 years
  • Return to daily activities within 2 weeks
  • Normal sexual activity can resume
