Product demonstrations and educational presentations underscore the company’s leadership in advancing care for patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)
WAYNE, Pa., May, 13, 2022 – Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX), a leading global provider of medical technologies, today announced the full U.S. commercial launch of its UroLift® 2 System and UroLift ATC® System, and that it will update the urology community through multiple in-booth presentations at the 2022 American Urological Association (AUA) annual meeting. The conference will take place in-person from May 13-16 in New Orleans.
“We are proud to share the new developments and product enhancements of the UroLift System with the urology community at AUA,” said Liam Kelly, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Teleflex. “The enhanced UroLift ATC System will enable urologists to treat more patients with a broad range of anatomies, including those with obstructive middle lobes, while the enhanced features of the UroLift 2 System can help improve workflow.”
The UroLift 2 System offers an improved workflow, including an ergonomic single trigger and an improved suture cutter in a reduced device and packaging footprint. The UroLift ATC System provides physicians with an enhanced delivery tip specifically designed to effectively treat patients with an obstructive median lobe.
“I have had occasion to use the UroLift ATC Advanced Tissue Control System multiple times and my experience has been very positive,” said Steven Gange+, M.D., F.A.C.S., Summit Urology Group. “The advanced engineering features of the UroLift ATC System make it easier to secure and retract prostate tissue which is especially useful when treating patients with large obstructive middle lobes."
Teleflex will host an event unveiling the UroLift 2 System led by Ted Lamson, Co-Founder of the UroLift System, and Liam Kelly, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Teleflex at the company’s booth #323 on Saturday, May 14 at 2:00-2:30pm CT. The event will include an informative discussion about the need for minimally invasive BPH treatments and valuable insights about the UroLift 2 System.

About the UroLift® System
The UroLift System is a minimally invasive treatment for lower urinary tract symptoms due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It is indicated for the treatment of symptoms of an enlarged prostate up to 100 cc in men 45 years or older (50 years outside U.S.). The UroLift permanent implants, delivered during an outpatient procedure, relieve prostate obstruction without heating, cutting, destruction of, or removing prostate tissue.1 The UroLift System can be used to treat a broad spectrum of anatomies, including obstructive median lobe.2 It is the only leading BPH procedure shown to not cause new onset, sustained erectile or ejaculatory dysfunction.*3-5 Most common adverse events are temporary and can include hematuria, dysuria, micturition urgency, pelvic pain, and urge incontinence.6 Rare side effects, including bleeding and infection, may lead to a serious outcome and may require intervention. Individual results may vary. The prostatic urethral lift procedure (using the UroLift System) is recommended for the treatment of BPH in both the American Urological Association and European Association of Urology clinical guidelines. More than 300,000 men have been treated with the UroLift System in select markets worldwide.7 Learn more at UroLift.com. Rx only.
