Surgical Treatment of LUTS in men with BPE


Transurethral Needle Ablation (TUNA)

Transurethral needle ablation (TUNA) of the prostate is minimally invasive treatment which uses heat to harden parts of the prostate tissue. This process is called coagulation. The treated part of the prostate is either absorbed by the body or it passes with urine after the procedure. The aim of TUNA is to reduce the prostate volume and to improve the symptoms.

When should I consider having TUNA?

TUNA is advised for men with a prostate between 30 to 80 millilitres, who prefer minimally invasive treatment or who are not fit to have surgery because of other medical conditions.
