Placement of urethral lift (UroLift) under topical anesthesia

June 3, 2016

In this video, Steven N. Gange, MD, demonstrates UroLift placement under topical anesthesia in the office setting and also includes comments from several patients who underwent the procedure.

This video looks at the prostatic urethral lift (UroLift, NeoTract, Inc.), which provides another tool in the urologist's armamentarium for treating BPH. Here, Neil Baum, MD, Steven N. Gange, MD, and Lance P. Walsh, MD, PhD, demonstrate several techniques to help urologists transition from performing this procedure in the OR to an office setting, where it is quicker and easier for the patient. Each video presents a different sedative option for in-office UroLift. Commentary on the videos is provided by Dr. Gange, a urologist in group practice in Salt Lake City, and 'Y'tube Section Editor James M. Hotaling, MD, MS, assistant professor of surgery (urology) at the Center for Reconstructive Urology and Men's Health, University of Utah, Salt Lake City. Dr. Gange has served as a principal investigator, consultant, and proctor for NeoTract.

Dr. Hotaling:

Dr. Gange explains the evolution of the UroLift and illustrates the optimal techniques for both local analgesia and implant placement. Specifically, he demonstrates an atraumatic rotation of the device in the bladder and placement along a clear plane 1.5 cm from the bladder neck. He also illustrates his care pathway for managing these patients.
