Surgical Treatment of LUTS in men with BPE

Prostate Stents

Prostate Stents

Prostate stents are used to keep the urethra open which improves the flow of urine. Stents are mainly recommended for men who are not fit for surgery but who are still able to empty the bladder on their own. They are used instead of an indwelling catheter.

When should I consider getting a stent?

Today, stents are not recommended as a permanent treatment option. You should consider stents only if you cannot tolerate anaesthesia which is needed for surgery.
