Abstract

Evidence-based recommendations on prostate artery embolisation for lower urinary tract symptoms caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia in adults. This involves blocking the blood vessels supplying the prostate with tiny plastic particles.

This guidance replaces NICE interventional procedures guidance on prostate artery embolisation for benign prostatic hyperplasia (IPG453).

Next review: this guidance will be reviewed if there is new evidence or safety concerns.
