evelopments in the use of prostatic stents Review (3450) Total Article Views Authors: Papatsoris AG, Junaid I, Zachou A, Kachrilas S, Zaman F, Masood J, Buchholz N Published Date April 2011 Volume 2011:3 Pages 63 - 68 DOI: Athanasios G Papatsoris, Islam Junaid, Alexandra Zachou, Stefanos Kachrilas, Faruquz Zaman, Junaid Masood, Noor Buchholz Department of Endourology, Barts and the London NHS Trust, London, UK Abstract: Bladder outflow obstruction is a very common age-related clinical entity due to a variety of benign and malignant diseases of the prostate. Surgical treatment under general or regional anesthesia is not suitable for high-risk elderly patients who seek minimally invasive management. Unfortunately, for patients who are not fit for transurethral and/or laser prostatectomy, few treatment options remain, other than long-term catheterization and insertion (under local anesthesia) of a prostatic stent. In this review, we present developments in the use of prostatic stents.
