Microwave Treatments for Enlarged Prostate Cause Blood Pressure Surges
Date:4/8/2008

ure events during and after transurethral microwave therapy, and our own experience, led us to look back at the records to identify potential problems among these patients whose blood pressure had been monitored."

The authors say the study findings should not necessarily deter physicians and their patients from using one of the six FDA-approved devices for transurethral microwave therapy, but they should take reasonable precautions given the strong possibility of blood pressure surges. "Blood pressure monitoring should be a standard part of the procedure. Blood pressure readings should be taken throughout the procedure, multiple times. Unfortunately, that has not always been the practice for this office-based therapy," Dr. Mynderse explains. "Monitoring will enable physicians to identify the problem and adjust treatment. Patients also should be encouraged to continue their anti-hypertensive medications, particularly beta blockers, as they prepare for the procedure."

Besides Larson and Dr. Mynderse, other authors of the paper include Thayne Larson, M.D.; Virend Somers, M.D., Ph.D.; Michael Jaff, D.O. and William Evans, D.O.
