Intraprocedural Techniques for Prostatic Artery Embolization
PAE is a technically challenging procedure due to multiple factors including variability of arterial anatomy and difficulty traversing small tortuous arteries. Considerations such as access site determination, cross-sectional angiography and advanced wire-catheter technique can improve success rates.
