João Pisco; Tiago Bilhim; Luis C Pinheiro; José Pereira; Lúcia Fernandes; Nuno Costa; Marisa Duarte; António G. Oliveira

 

Purpose

To evaluate the medium and long term clinical outcome of Prostatic Arteries Embolization (PAE) in 460 patients with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).

Materials and Methods

PAE was performed in 460 patients with BPH and moderate to severe Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) refractory to medical therapy for at least 6 months between March 2009 and July 2013. PAE was performed with non-spherical polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) particles in 372 patients, 300 – to 500 – µm tris-acryl microspheres (Embosphere) in 40 patients, 300 – to 500 – µm spherical PVA particles (Bead Block) in 20 patients and 400 – µm Polyzene – coated microspheres (Embozene) in 18 patients. PAE outcomes were evaluated based on International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), Quality of life (Qol) and International Index Erectile Function (IIEF) questionnaires,  prostate volume (PV), prostate specific antigen (PSA) and peak urinary flow rate (Qmax), changes from baseline. Clinical success was considered when there was reduction of the total IPSS score at least 25% and ≤ 15, Qol reduction of at least one point or ≤ 3 and no need of medical therapy or any other treatment.

Results

There were 8 (1.7%) technical failures and 29 patients were lost to follow up. All 423 controlled patients were followed up at 1, 3 and 6 months (short term) and every 6 months up to 3 years (mid term), 118 over 3 years (long term). From the last group, 27 patients have been followed over 4 years. A statistically significant improvement of all evaluated parameters was observed, over time. The cumulative rates were 81.3% at short term, 72.7% at medium term and 70.1% at long term. There were 2 major complications: a small bladder wall ischemia treated by surgery and a lasting pelvic pain for 3 months. Both patients remained without sequela. There was not any case of sexual dysfunction.

Conclusion

PAE is a safe, well tolerated, and efficient outpatient procedure, for patients with BPH and moderate to severe LUTS, good mid-term and long term results and no sexual dysfunction.

PURPOSE – To evaluate the preliminary clinical outcome of Prostatic Arteries Embolization (PAE) with Bead Block in patients with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).

Material and Methods – One hundred fifty patients, with BPH and moderate to severe lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) refractory to medical therapy for at least 6 months, underwent PAE with spherical polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) particles – Bead Block 300µm – 500µm, between October 2012 and August 2014. The clinical success was evaluated by clinical improvement of International Prostate Symptoms Score (IPSS), Quality of Life (Qol) and International Index Erectile Function (IIEF) questionnaires and by changes from baseline of Prostate Volume (PV), Prostatic Specific Antigen (PSA), Peak Urinary Flow rate (Qmax) and post-void Residual Volume (PVR) at 1, 3 and every 6 months after PAE.

Results – There was not any technical failure. Three patients was lost to follow up, therefore 146 patients were controlled.  Mean values: procedure time 80.3’; fluoroscopy time 20.5’; radiation 3842.1 dGycm; IPSS / Qol improvement of 10.4 ± 8.1 / 1.58 ± 1.01 points (32.5% / 20.7%). IIEF improvement 1.3 ± 3.0 (19.5%) points; PV reduction 26.2 ±31.5 (28.1%); Qmax improvement 4.7 ± 5.4 mL/s (35%); PSA reduction 3.2 ± 4.2 ng/ml (29.1%). There were 14 initial clinical failures (6.5%). There were 22 patients who were followed over 1 year. In this group of patients there were 2 (9.1%) initial clinical failures, thus the short term clinical success was 90,9%. In the same group of 22 controlled patients over 1 year there was 1 clinical failure at 1 year. Therefore, there was a clinical success over 1 year in 19/22 patients (86.4%). Overall in this group of 150 patients as minor complications there were 2 cases of hematuria, 2 cases of hematospermia, 1 case of slight rectorragia and 1 case of urinary infection. All these adverse events were self controlled. There were no major complications, no sexual dysfunction.

Conclusion – PAE with Bead Block for patients with BPH is an efficient and safe procedure with very good preliminary outcome.

Prostatic Arteries Embolization for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, with nonspherical PVA particles 150 µm – 250µm and 250 µm -355µm in 90 patients – preliminary results

José Pereira, João Pisco, Tiago Bilhim, Luis C. Pinheiro, Lúcia Fernandes, Nuno Costa, Marisa Duarte, António G. Oliveira

Purpose – To evaluate the outcome of Prostate Arteries Embolization (PAE) with nonspherical PVA particles, in 90 patients with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).

Materials and Methods – Between November 2012 and September 2013 90 patients with BPH and moderate to severe lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) refractory to medical therapy for at least 6 months underwent PAE with nonspherical Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) particles. By randomization the patients were divided in 2 groups. In group A the patients were embolized with nonspherical PVA particles 150µm – 250µm and in group B the patients were embolized with the same size particles plus 250µm -355µm particles.

Baseline values included mean prostate volume of 74.6 mL, a mean International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) of 22.7points, a mean Quality of Life (QoL) score of 4.2 points, a mean PSA of 4.9ng/dL, a mean Post-Void-Residual Urine (PVR) of 140 mL, a mean Peak flow-rate (Qmax) of 12.5mL/s and a mean International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) of 18 points. There were no significant differences of the different parameters at baseline.

Control follow-up was made at 1 and 3 months and included revaluation of baseline clinical parameters.

Results – There were 2 (2.2%) technical failures, 1 in each group. There were 12 patients who were lost to follow up, 5 in group A and 7 in group B, therefore there were 39 patients controlled in group A and 37 in group B. At 1 month after PAE, there were 7 (17.9%) initial failures in group A and 5 (13.5%) in group B. At 6 months after PAE the number of failures were 8 (20.5%) in group A and 6 (16.2%) in group B, therefore the clinical success, at 6 months, was 79.5% in group A and 83.8% in group B. The differences were not statically significant. There was not any major complication.

Conclusion – PAE for BPH with nonspherical PVA 150µm – 250µm and 250µm – 355µm is a safe and efficient outpatient procedure, with good preliminary results. The clinical success was slightly better with a misture of particles of different sizes.

Nuno Costa, João Pisco, Tiago Bilhim, Luis C. Pinheiro, Lúcia Fernandes, José Pereira, Marisa Duarte, Antonio G. Oliveira

 

Purpose – To evaluate the short term clinical outcome of prostate artery embolization (PAE) with polyzene-coated microspheres (Embozene) in 20 patients with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

Materials and Methods – Between June 2011 and July 2013, 20 patients with BPH and moderate to severe lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) refractory to medical therapy for at least 6 months, underwent PAE with Embozene 400µm. This prospective study was approved by the institutional review board and an Informed consent for PAE was signed by all participants. The clinical success was evaluated by clinical improvement of International Prostate Symptoms Score (IPSS), Quality of Life (Qol), International Index Erectile Function (IIEF) and by changes of Prostate Volume (PV), Prostatic Specific Antigen (PSA), Peak Urinary Flow rate (Qmax) and post-void Residual Volume (PVR) changes from baseline at 1 and 6 months after PAE. There was technical failure when none of the prostatic arteries was embolized. Clinical success was considered when there was reduction of the total IPSS score of at least 25% and ≤ 15, Qol reduction of at least one point or ≤ 3 and no need of medical therapy or any other treatment.

Results – There was not any technical failure. Three patients were lost to follow up, therefore 17 patients were controlled. There were 3 (17.6%) initial clinical failures and clinical success in 14 (14 (83.4%) patients. At 6 months there was another clinical failure, thus the clinical success at 6 months was 76.5 %. There was not any case of sexual dysfunction or any other major complication. There was 1 case of slight hematospermia and 1 case of rectorragia. Both adverse advents were self-controlled.

Conclusion – PAE for BPH with Embozene is a safe and efficient outpatient procedure, with low morbidity, no sexual dysfunction and good preliminary outcome at short term.

1.To review the basic branching patterns of the male pelvic vascular anatomy; 2.To review the origin and anatomical characteristics of the prostatic arteries (PA); 3.To compare the diagnostic performances of angio-MR, angio-CT and angiography; 4.To describe the main anatomical patterns and variations of the Internal Iliac Artery (IIA) and PA. CONTENT ORGANIZATION • Major basic branching patterns of male IIA – Adachi/Yamaki’s classification • Major IIA branches – Superior gluteal, Inferior gluteal, Internal pudendal arteries • Other dominant vessels – obturator and PA arteries • PA origin and anatomical findings • Review of imaging findings – vascular male pelvis 16-slice angio-CT 1.5T Angio-MR Angiography • Sample cases and mimics SUMMARY The PA usually originates from the pudendal artery, with origins from the obturator or superior vesical arteries being less frequent; 2.The PA has some consistent anatomical findings with a characteristic ‘corkscrew’ pattern and terminating in the inferior vesical and intra-prostatic branches; 3.Angiography and 16-slice angio-CT show similar diagnostic performances in identifying the pelvic vascular branching patterns and the PA anatomy. Angio-MR failed to detect small vascular branches.
