Water vapor therapy
A new treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia
Water vapor therapy is a new treatment procedure for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which causes problems with urination. Instead of traditional methods such as electric snare or laser ablation of the tissue, water vapor therapy uses water vapor to destroy the prostate tissue that constricts the urethra within the prostate.
Unlike traditional procedures, water vapor therapy carries a lower risk of side effects such as loss of ejaculation or incontinence. Precise treatment planning is enabled by high-resolution prostate MRI images, which provide the exact location of the area to be treated in relation to important anatomical structures such as the bladder sphincter, bladder floor, and bladder neck. The actual delivery of water vapor therapy is done in real time through an ultrasound transducer in the rectum, which allows for precise and safe therapy.
