This book provides a state-of-the-art review of the technical and clinical aspects of the arterial embolization procedures currently employed in treatment of prostate diseases.

Additional chapters on application of PAE in the treatment of hematuria of prostatic origin and prostate malignant tumor are presented. Detailed information is provided on the full range of relevant topics, including prostatic artery anatomy, preoperative preparation, patient selection, embolization agents selection, and post embolization management. Complications and side-effects are also fully discussed. It will be a valuable reference for interventional radiologists and urological surgeons who perform the embolization procedures, as well as diagnostic radiologists and urological physicians interested in interventional procedures.
