Is the Rezum procedure approved by the FDA?
Recently approved by the FDA in 2015, makes it possible to perform a prostate surgery in 5 minutes without causing ejaculation and sexual dysfunctions.
What is Rezum procedure?
Rezum operation helps to treat a benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) by throwing steam through an instrument into the enlarged area of the prostate; the vapor carries energy that will be diffused into the molecules which will be killed and discarded by the immune system.
It lasts 5 to 10 minutes under local anesthesia and the number of vapor ejection depends on the volume of the prostate.
How does the Rezum procedure work?
The Rezum procedure is a minimally invasive treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which is a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. The procedure uses steam to shrink the enlarged prostate tissue, which helps to relieve symptoms such as difficulty urinating and frequent urination while preserving ejaculation.
During the Rezum procedure, a thin tube called a transurethral catheter is inserted through the urethra and into the prostate. The catheter is then used to deliver steam to the prostate tissue. The steam is generated by heating water in a small container that is connected to the catheter. The heat causes the prostate tissue to shrink, which reduces the size of the prostate and improves urinary flow.
The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia or sedation, and typically takes around 10 minutes. After the procedure, patients may experience some discomfort or pain in the area, but this is usually mild and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Most patients are able to return to normal activities within a few days.
The Rezum procedure has been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms of BPH and improving urinary flow. The procedure has a lower risk of complications compared to other BPH treatments such as TURP. However, as with any medical procedure, there may be potential risks and side effects, so it is important to discuss the benefits and risks with a urologist before deciding whether to undergo the Rezum procedure.
