Dr. Martins Pisco’s Story with the PAE
On October of 2008, Dr. Martins Pisco’s brother died. His brother was a healthy athletic 64 years old with a friendly character. Never the less, he was approaching the age were most men begin to encounter problems with their prostate. His prostate problem escalated and he needed treatment, so he met with one of the most prestigious urologists in Portugal for surgery. Despite the experience of the surgeon, damage to the heart tissue as a consequence of the procedure proved fatal. This incident drove Dr. Martins Pisco to make a change and prevent the same consequence from affecting more people and their families. Thus prostate embolization was born. This was a new innovative procedure to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and avoid any major complications. The Ethics Committee of St. Louis Hospital as well as two other hospitals in Lisbon approved the project, and I started this fantastic and innovative treatment. We started uterine fibroid embolization on June 2004. Five years later after treating over 800 BPH patients with excellent results, we started embolization of the prostatic arteries.
