Noida: Recently Dr C P S Chauhan at Jaypee Hospital did Prostate Artery Embolisation, the patient is now back to normal and symptom free life.
Benign prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), also called prostate enlargement, is a noncancerous increase in size of the prostate gland. Its symptoms may include frequent urination, trouble starting to urinate, weak stream, inability to urinate, or loss of bladder control. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia affects more than around 50% of men by the age of 60 years and up to 80% in the men older than 70 years.
Surgery for the BPH is considered the traditional standard of care, several minimally invasive treatments are also offered. It is not advisable to opt for surgery in more than 100 gram enlarged prostate as it involves major risks hence at Jaypee Hospital it was treated with 125 gram by Prostate Artery Embolization which is emerging as an effective treatment option to the surgery which is safe. Prostate Artery Embolization is a treatment to reduce the enlarged size of prostate. In this technique blood vessel of the prostate gland is blocked by angiography techniques. Basically it is a minimally invasive technique which doesn’t need even anesthesia and the patient is discharged same day.
The 58 years old male patient was brought to Jaypee Hospital, he had 125 gram enlarged prostate and his bladder was blocked entirely, for which a catheter was inserted to pass the urine under his previous treatment. After coming to Jaypee Hospital Dr. CPS Chauhan, Additional Director, Radiology and Interventional Radiology, Dr. Dhirendra Pratap Singh Yadav, Consultant, Department of Radiology, Dr. Anshul Jain, Consultant, Neurointervention Radiology and their team decided to go with Prostate Artery Embolization.
Dr. CPS Chauhan, Additional Director, Radiology and Interventional Radiology, Jaypee Hospital, Noida said that, “After going through entire history of the patient with a few of tests we decided to go for nonsurgical treatment of enlarged prostate with Prostate Artery Embolisation and patient was discharged same day. After six days of the Prostate Artery Embolization we were able to take out his urinary catheter and he is now even able to urinate properly and is symptom free.”
Considering the giant and macho image of men in our society, significant misconceptions are rife when it comes to their physical problems. As social pressure leads them to be quite on their pain it is a need of the hour that men specific diseases should be discussed and awareness should be spread in public domain to fight such diseases.
Apart from providing healthcare services Jaypee Hospital understands its social responsibility and keeps organizing free health check up camps and public talks regarding healthcare.
