Optilume® BPH Catheter System in Alexandria, VAoptilume bph.

Do you suffer from BPH?

As men age, it’s common to encounter prostate enlargement, leading to a condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). In fact, BPH affects 70% of men 60-69 years of age and 80% of those 70 years of age or older. The prostate surrounds the tube responsible for transporting urine and semen, known as the urethra. With BPH, as the prostate grows larger, it exerts pressure on the urethra, potentially causing interruptions in the natural flow of urine.

Are BPH symptoms disrupting your way of life?

  • Frequent trips to the bathroom, day and night
  • Weak, slow or intermittent flow
  • Urgent need to pee
  • Inability to fully empty bladder

If any of these describe your condition, talk to a board-certified urologist at Potomac Urology about your Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTs).

What is the Optilume® BPH Catheter System, and how is it used?optilume therapy diagram.

Typically administered as an outpatient procedure, Optilume® BPH is a drug-coated balloon that is inserted into the urethra via a telescopic camera, to the prostate.

Once in the prostate, the balloon expands creating an opening, and releases the safe and proven drug, Paclitaxel, into the open prostate.

When the drug coating is fully released, the balloon is deflated and removed. The drug prevents refusion of the lobes during healing, keeping the prostate open, restoring the flow of urine and relieving you of your bothersome symptoms.
