Pre-operative preparation for vapor injection under local anesthesia treatment

  • Cystoscopy is performed before the procedure to allow or confirm the obstruction in the prostate.
  • An ultrasound of the prostate is also needed to measure the volume and length of the prostate in order to plan the treatment.
  • A urine analysis and culture are carried out before the intervention to check for sterility or to treat a possible infection.
  • A more general blood test is sometimes necessary, especially to study the functioning of the kidneys.
  • Any anti-coagulant medication should be stopped at least 5 days before the procedure.
  • Aspirin treatment can sometimes be continued at a low dose.
  • In prevention of an infection, it is possible to receive a dose of antibiotic before the intervention.
  • We recommend that the patient be accompanied. Preoperative medication is prescribed for comfort and anxiety. It must be taken one hour before the Vapor injection under local anesthesia treatment to promote relaxation, control anxiety and avoid movement during surgery.
