After all, a heat probe or electrode placed in a normal bladder catheter. And then inserted into the urethra where it positioned in the center of the prostate. The probe emits radiofrequency waves collected either by the hypertrophic tissue of BPH (Benign Prostate Hyperplasia). Or the cancerous tissue of prostate cancer. The heat development inside the prostate controlled by a computer. So this elevated temperature causes thermic damage to the malignant tissue, which destroyed effectively and replaced by healthy tissue. To be precise, with this method we not only destroy the malignant tumor cells in the prostate. But we also trigger an active specific immune response. Due to the temporary hormone therapy, we achieve a hormone growth inhibition of cancer cells outside of the prostate.
Patients treated with this method experience a significant improvement in their urination and together with a specific hormone modulation and biological support program can have a very effective treatment with excellent long-term results.
The Transurethral Prostate Hyperthermia is suitable for the treatment of:
