Prostate Artery Embolization (PAE) Side Effects

Prostate artery embolization side effects are rare, but they can occur. We'll take a closer look at PAE procedure side effects and how the risks of PAE can be mitigated.

While prostate artery embolization (PAE) presents an extremely low risk of complications for qualified candidates, risks are nonetheless involved.

These risks include the following issues:

It is important for patients considering PAE as a treatment option for BPH to have a thorough discussion with their healthcare provider. This discussion should include a detailed understanding of the procedure's associated risks and benefits. By being well-informed, patients can make an educated decision about their treatment plan.

Please note that the above risks are not exhaustive, and individual patient experiences may vary. It is always advisable to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized information and guidance related to PAE.

Like any medical procedure, PAE has some risks and complications. Georgia Prostate Institute takes a comprehensive approach to mitigating these risks and ensuring patient well-being.
