"The Urologix® Cooled ThermoTherapy™ System employs High Energy TUMT with an advanced cooling system."
Does anyone here have any experience with this? A urology center near me has this as a treatment option and it appears to be promising with minimal side effects. I have not seen any discussions of this here previously.
"In a confirmation of the results of the 4 randomized, prospective trials comparing Prostiva RF Therapy to TURP, the 2010 AUA BPH Practice Guidelines Committee concluded that: “… based on these reports, the symptom improvement is significant and sustained for both treatments, with somewhat greater improvement in the symptom score for TURP.”
I continue to look for alternative treatment options that have minimal side effects, no hospital stay, little or no pain during or after the treatment, and fast recovery time. So far PAE is the most benign treatment but doesn't work well with median lobe issues. For my PAE I went to the hospital at 7am and was released at 4pm. I never went into total retention or needed a catheter, but results were minimal since I do have some median lobe issues.
