Factors Affecting PAE Outcomes Identified

Initial prostate size and percentage reduction in prostate volume predict outcomes among men who undergo prostatic artery embolization (PAE) for benign prostatic obstruction, researchers reported online in Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiation. The findings are from a prospective follow-up study of 86 men who underwent PAE, of whom 62 (72.1%) had achieved clinical success at 12 months. Investigators Drew Maclean, MBChB, and colleagues at University Hospital Southampton in Southampton, UK, found that percentage volume reduction at 3 months had the strongest correlation with good symptomatic outcome at 12 months.
