Introduction: Innovation in surgery and the need for less invasive therapeutic options with reduced side effects have driven the advent of minimally invasive procedures for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Prostatic Arterial Embolisation (PAE) has been proven to reduce prostatic volume resulting in symptomatic improvement.

Patients and Methods: We report findings from a prospective study of PAE outcomes from May 2015 to December 2017 at a UK tertiary centre. Follow up IPSS score was compared using a T-Test.

Results: 27 patients (mean age 64yrs) were analysed. Main indication was minimal invasiveness and preservation of erectile function. 25 (92%) had received maximal medical therapy. Mean IPSS and QOL scores pre-procedure were 23 and 4. Average Qmax was 9mls/s and mean post-void residual urine volume was 135mls. 3 patients had long term catheters. 10 patients had urodynamically proven obstruction. 24 (89%) had bilateral PAE (3 unilateral). Follow up MRI at 3 months showed a mean volume reduction of 18% (96mls to 79mls). There have been no significant reported complications. At follow-up 70% of patients reported improvement in symptoms with a mean IPSS score 11, representing a 52% reduction (P < 0.001). A 50% improvement (mean 2) in QOL was also reported.

Conclusions: PAE is a safe and minimally invasive option for the treatment of BPH. 18% volume reduction is seen at 3 months on MRI. During follow up 70% of patients have reported symptom improvement with a mean reduction of 12 points (52%) in IPSS score compared to pre-procedure scores.
