Prolieve Thermodilatation System is a transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT) device that also uses a special balloon catheter to open up (dilate) the urethra, as well as microwave energy to heat and destroy enlarged prostatic tissue. In this procedure, the balloon catheter is filled with warm water. After the temperature of the tissue returns to normal, the urethra remains open. Prolieve which takes about 45 minutes, is performed in a physician’s office under local anesthesia. In a recent study, about 5% of patients required catheterization following the procedure.
