Reduce BPH – Benign prostatic hyperplasia
Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) or prostate adenoma is a male disease. The prostate is located below the bladder surrounding the urethra area. The prostate produces a substance which is part of semen (15%) expelled during ejaculation. From the age of 40 increases the size of this gland and this growth is called prostatic hypertrophy, benign prostatic hyperplasia or prostate adenoma.
By increasing the size of the prostate it appears some difficulty with urine through the urethra, leading to obstruction that prevents urination. Besides the feeling of urgency to urinate, frequency of urination and the sensation of incomplete emptying of the bladder are consequences of this inflammation.
From one person to another, these symptoms may vary.
Hyperthermia treatment is used for this problem because prostate tissue is destroyed by heat without harming the adjacent tissue. The cells responsible for the abnormal growth of the prostate do not tolerate the applied overheating caused by hyperthermia and they are destroyed. The surrounding cells of the body adapt to the change of temperature without injury as it occurs with fever.
Plates are strategically located in the pelvis and is applied noninvasively, a frequency of 13.56MHz creating a constant temperature of 43.5° C during one hour. The cycles are repeated until 10 sessions and then resting for 21 days for a new application if necessary, the number of cycles required is determined by the patient’s progress.
