Water Vapour Therapy
Powered by convective water vapour energy, the Rezūm System delivers targeted, controlled doses of the stored thermal energy in water vapour directly to the region of the prostate gland with the obstructive tissue causing the lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Each 9-second treatment uses 0.42ml of heated sterile water vapour which rapidly and uniformly disperses through the tissue interstices. The condensation of water vapour releases stored thermal energy. Cell membranes are denatured, thereby causing immediate cell death, the vasculature is closed, and there is denervation of the alpha-adrenergic nerves within the treatment zone providing you with an efficient, uniform, predictable treatment.
Over time, this ablated tissue is reabsorbed by the body’s natural healing response, reducing the volume of tissue allowing the urethra to open relieving LUTS.
The Rezūm procedure provides the following benefits to men suffering from BPH:
- Alternative to BPH medications1
- Studies support Rezūm relieves symptoms safely and effectively2
- Noticeable symptom improvement within two weeks2
- Preserves erectile and urinary functions2
- Ability to return to regular activities within a few days2*
