iTind Treatment for BPH

What Is iTind?
The iTind procedure reshapes the anatomy of the prostatic urethra, gently creating a wider opening for urine to flow freely, without burning or cutting out tissue, and without leaving behind a permanent implant. The treatment is straightforward, does not require overnight hospitalization, and has none of the side effects associated with prescription medication.
The iTind treatment is a simple procedure performed by a urologist either in the hospital or a clinic and the patient is sent home the same day. The device is placed in the prostatic urethra in a folded configuration and the patient is sent home. During the 5 to 7-day treatment, the iTind slowly expands and exerts gentle pressure at three precise points to widen the prostatic urethra opening through which urine can now flow. After 5 to 7 days, the device is completely removed in an office or clinic. Clinical trials demonstrate that the newly reshaped prostate will continue to provide long-lasting relief of BPH symptoms.
Benefits of the iTind procedure include:
- Rapid symptom relief
- Preserves sexual function
- Straightforward outpatient or office-based procedure
- No permanent implant
- Minimal downtime
- No need for catheter
- Durable results
Who Is a Candidate for iTind?
The iTind procedure is intended to treat men over the age of 50 for the rapid symptom relief to BPH patients seeking an alternative to prescription drugs and more invasive surgical procedures.
