How Does it Work?

The iTind treatment is a simple procedure performed by a urologist in our clinic.
The device is placed in the prostatic urethra in a folded configuration. During the 5 to 7-day treatment, it slowly expands and exerts gentle pressure at three precise points to widen the opening through which urine flows through the prostatic urethra and then out of the body. After 5 to 7 days, the device is completely removed. Clinical trials demonstrate that the newly remodeled prostatic urethra will continue to provide long-lasting relief of BPH symptoms.

Procedure

In your doctor’s office you may receive some light sedation and a local anesthetic.

A cystoscope is a miniature camera which will be inserted into your urethra to place the iTind device in your prostatic urethra. Once in place you should be able to urinate freely, so there is no need for a catheter and you will be released to go home.

During the next 5 to 7 days you may resume most normal activities, depending on how comfortable you feel. The most common side effect reported while the iTind is in place is pressure around the area of the perineum and increased urgency and frequency to urinate. Some patients also experience some light blood in their urine and slight burning when urinating.

After 5 to 7 days, your doctor will completely remove the iTind device using a flexible silicone catheter. Once this is done, you may return to your normal life.

Duration

The insertion of the iTind device into the prostatic urethra generally takes a few short hours. Following the initial insertion, it takes 5 to 7 days for the iTind device to widen the prostatic urethra, during which patients may resume their daily activities.

Recovery

After insertion of the iTind device, you may be kept for a few hours for observation. Upon returning home you may resume most normal activities depending on your personal level of comfort.

Risks

Any side effects experienced typically subside once the iTind is removed.

The most common side effects experienced are the feeling of pressure in the area of the perineum, an increased frequency and urgency to urinate, light blood in urine, and slight burning upon urination.

In clinical studies there have been no indications of long-term adverse side effects. Since the iTind device is completely removed after it has done its job to widen the opening at the prostatic urethra, there is no risk of implant migration, encrustation, or tissue overgrowth that could complicate removal. Moreover, there are no obstacles in maintaining a regular prostate screening program, including physical exams or any type of imaging, such as MRI, if needed.

In terms of pain, most patients experience only mild to moderate discomfort while the iTind is in place, however patient experience is variable.
