Abstract

To further enhance the minimal invasiveness of Rezum treatment (RT), we sought to evaluate the advantages and feasibility of transurethral intraprostatic anesthesia (TUIA) via Schelin Catheter™ (SC). We enrolled 20 men with LUTS due to BPH, who underwent RT using TUIA via SC. Prior to the procedure, patients were asked to rate their pain on a numeric rating scale (NRS) numbered 0-10: with 0 being "No pain" and 10 being "Worst pain". Median NRS score ranged from 0 to 3. No perioperative procedure-related complications were reported.
