New treatment for prostate enlargement developed by Portuguese doctors
“Doctors from all over the world are heading for Lisbon to learn how to perform a new medical procedure that may improve the quality of life for millions of men suffering from prostate enlargement. The condition known as Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) affects all men at one point or another in life. 70 per cent of the elderly suffer from BPH.
The new treatment was developed by doctor João Martins Pisco, at the Saint Louis hospital in Lisbon, Portugal. It is called Prostatic Artery Embolization and it blocks blood supply. It is performed under local anesthetic and monitored. For the moment, patients have to come to Lisbon to undergo the procedure but it is being rolled out in 30 American clinics this year…”
