Wesley Medical Imaging has released the first round of follow-up data for the P-EASY Trial and Registry (Prostate artery Embolisation Assessment of Safety and efficacY). The first of its kind in Australia, WMI’s prostate artery embolization trial demonstrated that the procedure can be successfully performed without any serious complications.
95% of patients had a significant improvement in their urinary symptoms, and two thirds were completely symptoms free within 3 months after the procedure. 90% of men had ceased or significantly reduced their medications. 5 out of 6 men who were dependent on catheters had them successfully removed.
