Had PAE at St Louis University hospitals, Dr Pereira and associates in the Interventional Radiology department in April 2017. Fantastic result with minimal inconvenience. Discovered the procedure indirectly with a family connection to the company that supplies the instruments for the PAE. The procedure has been very recently been competely approved, insurance, etc, but is available at a limited number of sites.
The most inconvenient part was traveling from Kansas City to St Louis, University hospital. Many interested patients are not aware of the availability of the procedure in their area and travel unnecessary distances to have the procedure performed.
A directory, formed by the groups,hospitals offering the procedure (as the NET information site) would be helpful, since this procedure is a wonderful advancement for MEN and is the future of BPH treatment.
The Doctors and staff and hospital at St Louis University hospital is outstanding. Being aware during the procedure and seeing the doctor thread the cannula thru my Femoral artery (small needle stick into the artery after local anesthesia of the area) was totally painless and very interesting.
I am enjoying the fantastic result, no urgency, frequency and complete bladder emptying -- like I am a kid again.
