  • Many attempts have been made to develop a method for treating benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) that is minimally invasive, efficacious, and low cost. The transurethral needle ablation (TUNA) device has recently been developed to treat BPH by selectively ablating hyperplastic prostatic tissue. A special catheter incorporates needles that deliver low-level radiofrequency power directly to a very localized area of the prostate. The needles have adjustable shields to protect the urethra if… CONTINUE READING
