What is Prostatic Artery Embolization?

Prostatic Artery Embolization (PAE) is a minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of BPH with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). The prostate arteries are embolized by tiny microspheres that block some of the blood flow to the prostate, shrinking the tissue and relieving symptoms.
