Rezum Q & A

REZŪM for BPH– a New Treatment Option for Men with Enlarged Prostate

The REZŪM procedure involves the delivery of heat generated by the radiofrequency energy that is converted to water vapor.  REZŪM generated water vapor is injected under high pressure through a special REZŪM delivery device into the prostate tissue which leads to the destruction of prostate tissue that blocks urine flow.  

How Effective is REZŪM?

The REZŪM procedure has been studied in randomized controlled trials, which is the highest level of scientific evidence.  REZŪM study demonstrated that the REZŪM procedure is at least as effective as medications for the treatment of enlarged prostate.

After the REZŪM procedure, men can expect to experience less urinary frequency, urgency, and urge incontinence symptoms. Many men also experience fewer trips to the bathroom at night which allows them to get better rest.

What is Rezūm Procedure for Enlarged Prostate?

Rezūm is an innovative procedure that has proven to be very effective in the treatment of men with an enlarged prostate. Rezūm procedure can help men with frequent urination, urinary urgency, and a slow urine stream to improve their symptoms.  Rezūm may also help men who need to wake up at night to urinate to pee less often.

How is the Rezūm Procedure Performed?

Rezūm procedure is performed in our office under local or IV anesthesia.  The treatment takes less than 30 minutes to do.  A patient is able to go home shortly after the procedure. 

Who is a Candidate for the Rezūm Procedure?

Men with symptoms of the enlarged prostate such as slow urine stream, feeling of incomplete bladder emptying or needing to strain to push urine out and frequent urination are candidates for REZŪM.  Men who are not in urinary retention and do not have kidney function problems caused by BPH are usually good candidates for REZŪM.  

Men who are concerned about their ejaculation function and do not wish to take daily medications or have intolerable side effects to medications are good candidates for the REZŪM procedure.

How Soon Can I Expect to See Benefits after Rezūm Procedure?

It typically takes about 1 month after the Rezūm procedure to notice an improvement in urinary symptoms including improvement in urinary urgency, frequency, and urinary stream. The maximum benefit is typically achieved about 3-6 months after the procedure.  Studies show that the benefit persists for at least 3 years after the REZŪM procedure for the treatment of enlarged prostate symptoms. 

Quality of life after REZŪM, as reported by patients, improves by 50% with symptoms improving maximally by 3 months after Rezūm and staying at the same level for 3 years in the study.

Significantly, REZŪM is just as effective in men with median lobe as in men without median lobe with IPSS symptom improvement similar between the two groups.

What is significant is that the failure rate of 4% after treatment at 3 years is very low.

Studies show that there is no significant change in ejaculation function or erection quality after 3 years.
