Treatment with PUL is typically a one-time solution that provides rapid relief and recovery of BPH symptoms.1 It may break the cycle of medications and how they make a person feel, all without the risks of more invasive surgery. The goal of the PUL treatment is to relieve symptoms so you can get back to your life and resume your daily activities.
PUL has demonstrated a significant improvement in quality of life for patients compared to medications.2,3 PUL is the only BPH procedure shown not to cause new and lasting erectile or ejaculatory dysfunction.1
PUL uses a revolutionary approach to treating BPH that lifts and holds the enlarged prostate tissue so it no longer blocks the urethra. It is the only BPH treatment performed by a urologist that does not require heating, cutting, or removal of the prostate tissue. The procedure is typically performed using local anaesthesia in the outpatient clinic or day surgery unit. Patients typically return home the same day without a catheter.1
An enlarged prostate can narrow or even block the urethra.
The PUL Delivery Device is placed through the obstructed urethra to access the enlarged prostate.
Small PUL Implants are permanently placed to lift and hold the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way and increase the opening of the urethra.
The PUL Delivery Device is removed, leaving an open urethra designed to provide symptom relief.
As with any medical procedure, individual results may vary. Speak with your urologist to see if the PUL treatment is right for you. Most common side effects are mild to moderate and include pain or burning with urination, blood in the urine, pelvic pain, urgent need to urinate and/or the inability to control the urge. Most of these side effects resolve within two to four weeks after the procedure.
