Urethral Prostate Retraction Implants

Definition : Implants designed for retraction of the prostate lobes from the urethra. These implants typically consist of a combination of a suture with two appropriate terminal pieces for the urethral and prostate ends respectively. The implants are inserted through the urethra using a dedicated delivery unit that includes a rigid sheath and a needle that comes out from the distal end of the sheath. When the sheath reaches the obstruction point, the implants are deployed, retracting the prostate lobes (usually two implants are needed for the right and left lobes of the prostate gland); once the implants are in place the sheath and the delivery unit are removed. Urethral prostate retraction implants are intended to open the urethra without surgical incisions; they are mainly used to treat patients suffering from lower urinary tract difficulties due to prostatic hyperplasia.
