Understanding the Cost of Prostate Artery Embolization

Posted on December 26, 2023

If you're considering PAE to treat Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH, also called prostate enlargement) you'll want to know the cost of Prostate Artery Embolization. Now, since it's a minimally invasive treatment option approved for relieving BPH-related LUTS (lower urinary tract symptoms) it is already less expensive than surgical procedures. Even better, it carries a reduced risk for side effects, allowing you to avoid both costly hospital stays and expensive follow up care. But these savings don't even present the full picture. In fact, a recent Radiology study examined PAE cost-effectiveness through a lens of long-and-short-term considerations. And what they discovered? Well, the results are so so exciting that our Georgia Prostate Insitute specialists are thrilled to share them here!

Cost of Prostate Artery Embolization: What to Consider

For the study in question, researchers began by examining PAE's ability to effectively relieve BPH symptoms, then compared that efficacy to both surgical procedures and other treatment options such as medical management. Quickly, they learned that PAE is a highly effective minimally invasive BPH treatment, superior to most other minimally invasive options.

Next, it considered the short and long-term costs association with the procedure. This included factors such as the potential for complications; the likelihood of recurring symptoms requiring medical care; and the overall improvement in quality of life and life expectancy. Here's the conclusion they reached. Compared to five other BPH treatment options, PAE is both the "most effective treatment strategy" and "the most cost-effective treatment strategy."
