Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE) Recovery Time and Outcomes

Prostate artery embolization recovery time is markedly shorter than other standard treatments for an enlarged prostate. We'll take a closer look at the recovery times, outcomes, and factors that affect them.

Prostate artery embolization (PAE) is a non-surgical treatment for managing benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). BPH is a widespread disorder in older men where the prostate gland enlarges, causing lower urinary tract symptoms.

PAE involves blocking the blood supply to the prostate, reducing its size, and relieving the symptoms associated with BPH. PAE is an outpatient approach lasting approximately two hours and typically requires less than one week of recovery.

The recovery process after PAE is generally well-tolerated by patients. Most individuals can expect to return to normal daily activities within a few days to a week after the procedure. However, it is important to note that each patient's recovery may vary, and some individuals may require additional recovery time.

What affects PAE recovery time?

The following factors can affect prostate artery embolization recovery time.

It is important to note that while these factors can impact recovery times, each patient's experience may vary. Patients must communicate with their healthcare providers and follow their guidance for optimal recovery after PAE for BPH.
