  • (1888PressRelease) March 08, 2016 - A recent article in the SOJ Urology and Nephrology: "Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) treatment: new challenges in the 'watchful waiting' stage", states that Thermobalancing therapy is the only external non-invasive treatment that targets pathological nidus continuously for a prolonged period of time, i.e. for days, months or even years, maintaining the accumulated temperature.

    Watchful waiting is a well-known approach to the management of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Some studies have confirmed the progressive nature of BPH, with symptom progression being the most common manifestation. Variables such as baseline prostate-specific antigen, prostate volume, symptom score and bother score, decreased flow rate, and increased post void residual have all been linked to BPH progression. So it is necessary to support men with safe and effective therapy.

    A 2-yr clinical trial involving 124 men with BPH, to whom the natural therapeutic device, termed Dr Allen's Device, was administered as a mono-therapy, has confirmed the effectiveness and safety of Thermobalancing therapy. 'We believe that the use of therapeutic device by keeping the temperature in the projection of the prostate gland acts on micro-focus of hypothermia and ischemia in it, removing the vicious cycle of spontaneous growth of capillaries in response to a trigger 'micro- hypothermia', thereby relieving the pressure in the prostate gland, relieving LUTS,' says Prof Aghajanyan, Head of the Department of Urology at the Yerevan State Medical University, who led this clinical study.

    So, therapeutic device should be used when LUTS/BPH is diagnosed in the first place, i.e. in the 'watchful waiting' stage. It is important as current BPH medications and surgical procedures may develop complications reducing men's quality of life. Intervention with anti-inflammatory drugs for men in starting point of prostate enlargement must be also considered carefully as these medications have serious side effects.

    'Other non-invasive treatments, including supplements and remedies are unable to stop the process of prostate enlargement as they do not influence on the prostate gland directly, So before the invention of this therapeutic device, a surgery used to be the only effective treatment for BPH as it just cuts out the whole prostate gland or a part of it', states Dr Allen, 'But now men have a gifted choice'.
