Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE)
Finally, a same-day outpatient procedure for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Do you suffer from frequent urination at night, a hesitant or interrupted urine stream, a sudden need to urinate, or a feeling that your bladder just doesn’t empty completely?
You might have BPH and qualify for PAE.
BPH is a common prostate enlargement condition that affects many older men. It is the most common benign tumor in men, affecting 50 percent of men who are 60 years old and older.
A diagnosis of BPH can be disheartening because it comes with various lower urinary tract symptoms that can lower your quality of life.
Common symptoms of BPH include
- Frequent or urgent need to urinate
- Urinating more often at night
- Unable to fully empty your bladder
- Dribbling when done urinating
- Weak stream or one that stops and goes
Do You Qualify for PAE?
You might be a candidate for PAE if you’ve been diagnosed with BPH, continue to experience symptoms with medications, don’t want to, or are not eligible for surgery.
When symptoms of BPH become bothersome, it might be time to contact your doctor.
What is PAE? Benefits and Technique
Prostate artery embolization is a minimally invasive procedure — performed by an interventional radiologist — that is safe and effective for symptoms associated with BPH.
You can rest assured that Texas Endovascular provides high-quality care and an exceptional patient experience for PAE.
Benefits of the Procedure
- Same-day outpatient treatment
- Minimally invasive

What to Expect: The Procedure
PAE is performed under mild sedation or general anesthesia.
Your doctor will insert a small catheter into an artery in your wrist. Using an X-ray, your doctor will deliver tiny beads into the arteries blocking your prostate blood. This helps slow the blood flow to your prostate, causing it to shrink within 1-2 weeks following the procedure.
