  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common and progressive disease affecting aging men which has a significant impact on quality of life. The Optilume BPH Catheter System (Optilume BPH) is a prostatic dilation system that combines balloon dilation with a localized transfer of paclitaxel to maintain long term patency. Optilume BPH can be deployed using standard rigid cystoscopy without general anesthesia in an office setting. Prospective data indicate that Optilume BPH has favorable functional and sexual patient outcomes. Readers will familiarize themselves with Optilume BPH, significant historical studies and the technique for deploying Optilume BPH.
