Rare form of embolisation treatment performed at KIMS

Kochi, Aug 12(UNI) In a rare form of embolisation treatment or prostrate enlargement, an Omani patient with urinary retention and dependent on catheter for more than 50 days was successfully treated at KIMS Hospital, Trivandrum through a radiological procedure called 'Prostratic Artery Embolisation.'
This procedure done by KIMS was the first ever performed in Kerala and one of the first few cases in the country, KIMS said in a statement today.
In Prostratic Artery Embolisation, the blood supply to the prostrate gland was blocked by a minimal invasive procedure done through a small groin puncture. This leads to shrinkage of prostrate over a period of time, the statement said.
The patient was admitted in KIMS with inability to pass urine normally and was dependent on catheter for his urine drainage, it said adding that he was suffering from a condition called benign hypertrophy of prostrate.
The prostrate gland was known to enlarge in size in old age leading to symptoms of urinary retention and increased frequency to pass urine and the most common way of treating this condition was either through medicine or through a surgical procedure, the statement further said.
The Omani patient was in a condition wherein a surgery was impossible due to his poor heart condition and the patient was advised on this new form of treatment, Prostratic Artery Embolisation', a procedure done without general anesthesia, it said.
The patient was off the catheter the next day of the procedure and was able to pass urine normally and after two days of post procedure stay at the hospital the patient was discharged.
Such type of a procedure is rarely done at hospitals. The procedure which lasted for two hours was conducted by interventional radiologists, Dr. Manish Kumar Yadav and Dr.Madhavan Unni, the statement added.
