What is BPH?
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) — also called prostate gland enlargement — is a common condition as men get older. An enlarged prostate gland can cause several symptoms with the most common being blocking the flow of urine out of the bladder.
Symptoms
The severity of symptoms in men who have BPH varies, but symptoms tend to gradually worsen over time. Common signs and symptoms of BPH include:
  • Increased frequency of urination at night (nocturia)
  • Inability to completely empty the bladder
  • Frequent or urgent need to urinate
  • Difficulty starting urination
  • Weak urine stream or a stream that stops and starts
  • Dribbling at the end of urination
What is the UroLift System?
The UroLift® System treatment is a revolutionary, minimally invasive approach to treating an enlarged prostate or BPH, that lifts or holds the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way so it no longer blocks the urethra. There is no cutting, heating or removal of prostate tissue.
Clinical data has shown that the UroLift System treatment is safe and effective in relieving lower urinary tract symptoms due to BPH without compromising sexual function1,4. The goal of the UroLift System treatment is to relieve symptoms so you can get back to your life and resume your daily activities.
Most common side effects are light blood in the urine, some pain or discomfort when urinating, some increased urge to go and discomfort in the pelvis that typically resolves within two to four weeks after the procedure.
Advantages of the UroLift System:
  • Rapid symptom relief, better than reported for medications2
  • Risk profile better than reported for surgical procedures such as TURP3
  • Preservation of sexual function1
  • Return to normal activity in days not months
  • Increased quality of life
  • No ongoing BPH medications
  • 19 clinical study publications; 4 years published clinical data4
How the UroLift works:
The UroLift System treatment is a straightforward procedure that is performed by a urologist. The urologist places tiny implants to hold the prostate lobes apart, like open curtains on a window, to relieve compression on the urethra. This allows urine to flow normally again. The UroLift System treatment can be done in the physician’s office under local anesthesia. Typically, patients return home the same day without a catheter.2
