Prostatic artery embolization (PAE) is performed to help improve urinary symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), without the risk of sexual side effects.

An enlarged prostate, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), is the most common noncancerous prostate problem, occurring in most men by the time they reach their 60s. Symptoms of BPH can include slow, interrupted, or weak urinary stream; urgency with leaking or dribbling; and frequent urination, especially at night.

Prostatic artery embolization (PAE) is a cutting-edge procedure performed to help improve urinary symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate without the risk of sexual side effects. Originally developed in Europe and South America, this procedure is now being studied in the United States. UNC Interventional Radiology in the UNC Center for Heart & Vascular Care is excited to be contributing to this research.
