Everything you need to know about the main methods for BPH treatment

Medication method of therapy

Alpha Blockers

Alpha blockers are used to relax the muscles around the bladder bottom for easier emptying of the bladder. The only contraindication for using alpha blockers is a low blood pressure.

Alpha blockers for the treatment of an enlarged prostate:

  • alfuzosin (Uroxatral);
  • doxazosin (Cardura);
  • silodosin (Rapaflo);
  • tamsulosin (Flomax);
  • terazosin (Hytrin).

5-Alpha Reductase Inhibitors

Enzyme inhibitors or 5-alpha reductase inhibitors are the proteins for slowing down the metabolic processes and reducing the level of hormones, which cause the enlarging of the prostate. Enzyme inhibitors also reduce the PSA level in the blood.

Specialists prescribe 2 main enzyme inhibitors for BPH treatment:

  • dutasteride (Avodart);
  • finasteride (Proscar).

Combination Therapy

Combination therapy is a mix of alpha blocker with 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. Medication combo is used only in cases of BPH progression. Specialists prescribe this method of therapy when alpha blocker is not enough to cure prostate enlargement.

Minimally Invasive Therapy

TUMT for enlarged prostate treatment

Transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT) is a minimally invasive procedure based on destroying of prostate tissue with heat. TUMT does not treat prostate enlargement, but cuts down urinary symptoms caused by BPH.

TUNA Treatment

Transurethral needle ablation is used for treating of benign prostatic hyperplasia symptoms. TUNA procedure is performing with the help of radio waves supplying through needles. Radiofrequency energy effects and destroys the prostate tissue. Burning sensation is the only possible side effect after TUNA.

Surgical procedures

Transurethral resection of the prostate

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is the most common type of surgery for benign prostatic hyperplasia according to the National Institute of Health. The procedure is used to treat blockage of the urethra. The most common risk that can occur after TURP is bleeding.

Laser surgery

Laser surgery is providing for destroying the prostate tissue with the help of a high-energy laser. For performing laser surgery, a specialist uses cystoscope, which passes a laser fiber through the urethra into the prostate. Laser surgery almost excludes the risk of bleeding. However, this type of surgery is not effective for great enlarged prostates treatment.

Prostatectomy

Prostatectomy is based on making an incision to reach the prostate. An urologist can remove all or only a part of the prostate. Prostatectomy is used in cases, when the prostate is large, when a patient has some complications or when the bladder is damaged.

The patient was treated of coxarthrosis

Клиника на ул. Малвазинки была выбрана потому что: 1. Клиника специализируется именно на операциях по замене тазобедренных и коленных суставов; 2. Здесь предлагалось провести операцию малоинвазивным способом, т.е. разрез не более 10-12 см. Небольшой разрез – гарантировал максимальное сохранение тканей мышц и быстрое восстановление после операции; 3. Клиника предоставляет услуги не только по операции, но и по последующей реабилитации; 4. Предложение по стоимости было наиболее оптимальным по сравнению с предложениями других клиник. После принятия решения, началась переписка с организаторами медицинского тура. Надо отдать должное сотрудниками по связи с иностранными клиентами, они профессионально и оперативно отвечали на все вопросы, подготовили приглашение, встретили и проводили, организовали: трансфер из аэропорта и в аэропорт из клиники, сопровождение переводчиками на протяжении всего срока пребывания в клинике. Всё было сделано на высшем уровне, за что я им очень признателен! Операцию проводил доктор В. Господар. Всё прошло штатно, как и было запланировано. Разрез в районе 12 см. Однако на следующий день после операции появилась сильная боль в продольной мышце вдоль позвоночника под лопаткой с левой стороны. Она меня мучила даже больше, чем должен был беспокоить разрез. Позднее мне несколько ослабили эту боль с помощью массажа и электро-процедур, но боль всё равно давала о себе знать. Реабилитация проводилась под руководством физиотерапевтов, я посещал групповые занятия и старался больше ходить, однако после снятия швов обнаружилась гематома и, как результат, пришлось выдержать ещё одно оперативное вмешательство по её удалению. После второй операции прекратились боли под лопаткой. Правда, восстанавливаться пришлось заново, и продлить реабилитацию на одну дополнительную неделю. Медицинский персонал клиники был очень приветлив и внимателен, что позволило мне чувствовать себя не как в клинике, а просто как в гостях у добрых, давно знакомых людей. Хочу ещё раз выразить свою благодарность: - медицинскому персоналу (сестричкам и мед. братьям, всем); - физиотерапевтам, особенно Martin Kazemir – он заново научил меня двигать ногой в тазобедренном суставе, а не всем тазом; - переводчикам (Айгерим (Айя), Марии и ещё Марии); - ортопеду Сергею Рыжову; - докторам В. Господару и Томашу Виммеру; - организаторам, без которых я так бы и продолжал хромать, Ольге Скатковой и Ирине Корчминской.

The patient underwent hair transplant

First of all, thanks to my coordinating doctor Maxim. Thanks to him, I came to this clinic. Everything went at the highest level. We met at the Airport, settled into the Hotel (excellent room), which is located 20 meters from the Clinic itself + everything was included tomorrow with a buffet that is located in the restaurant of the Hotel. The operation was easy and painless. The staff at the clinic is very attentive and caring. Upon completion, they were taken to the airport. I want to express my gratitude:  Doctor Cagatay Cebeci - was in touch with me 24/7 as well as in addition to the clinic, both on professional issues and on personal help.  Madame Safiye - conducted an inspection and came to check how the operation was going.  Secil and Sibel are professionals in their field, it was they who performed the hair transplant surgery, everything went quickly and easily. Two charismatic girls.  Thanks to all the staff, everyone was interested in how I was doing and whether everything looked fine with my hair. The driver made sure that I carefully sat down and got out of the car.
