Thinking about PAE for BPH

Posted , 6 users are following.

Would like to know if someone here that have made laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair (keyhole surgery) using a mesh, that had done PAE successful. Would like to understand how the PAE surgeon can view prostatic arteries thru the mesh used to make the hernia repair. Is that possible?

    Hi, Irp1,

    I had inguinal hernia surgery done with mesh about 12 years ago--however, it was not done laparoscopically. Then last June I had PAE done. There was no problem seeing my arteries that I am aware of. My IR used Twilight sedation so I was alert during the procedure. At times the imagining equipment would move and allow me to see my arteries on the large screen in the operating room. Pretty cool.

      Thanks a lot stebrunner for your valuable reply. Now I´m very glad that I must have a chance to have PAE successfully done. You washed my anguish away. Now I can sleep peacefully, thinking that a PAE.is a great chance to relieve my symptoms.

    Had my pae by dr bagla at vascular institute of Virginia who has done more than anyone in the US and has great results. The hernia repair does not get in the way as he put a catheter and needle in a small artery in the top of the leg. They are in the arteries for the procedure.

    Had it done by dr Bagla at vascular institute of Virginia and have posted my success along the way. Your mesh does not get in the way.

    HI IRP, I had laporscopic inguinal hernia done in 2006, by a surgeon that does laporscopic surgery. You now have me wondering if this surgery   has something to do with my complete urine retention? I was told it was my bladder and enlarged prostate, however my urodynamics says different.Thanks for making me alert about this. Did you have PAE ?

    thanks

    frank
