What is The UroLift® System used for? (Indications for Use)

The UroLift System is indicated for the treatment of symptoms due to urinary outflow obstruction secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men 50 years of age or older.

Are there any reasons why I should not receive a UroLift System procedure?

The UroLift System should not be used if you have:

  • Prostate volume of >100 cc
  • A urinary tract infection

What other things should my doctor advise me about?

Most patients do not typically require a catheter post-procedure, but it is possible that you may. If needed, the catheter typically only stays in for an average of about one day.1,2

Recovery times vary but patients typically experience rapid symptom relief and a return to normal activity within a few days. Your doctor will discuss any restrictions in your specific situation.2

What are common side effects?

Most common side effects are temporary and can include pain or burning with urination, blood in the urine, pelvic pain, urgent need to urinate and/or the inability to control the urge.5

Rare side effects, including bleeding and infection, may lead to a serious outcome and may require intervention.

Treatment using the UROLIFT System is not appropriate if you have a prostate volume greater than 100cc, a urinary tract infection or other conditions that can be identified by your urologist.

In the large, pivotal study, there were no reported instances of new, sustained erectile or ejaculatory dysfunction following a UroLift System procedure.3-5
