WAYNE, PA — Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX) recently hosted urologists from around the world to review clinical data and share best practices for using the UroLift® System to improve the care of patients with an enlarged prostate, or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Throughout the day-and-a-half Inaugural ANZ BPH Summit, held at the Pullman Sydney Airport Hotel Nov. 15-16, attendees learned about the advancement of BPH treatment and the evolution of the UroLift System, reviewed clinical data, and exchanged best practices, and advanced techniques for treating BPH.
“It was fantastic to have passionate international and local urologists gather at the Inaugural ANZ BPH Summit to share their experiences, knowledge, and advancements in BPH treatment,” said Alistair McKeon, General Manager Teleflex Australia and New Zealand. “We’re very fortunate to work with such a dedicated group of physicians in shaping the future of minimally invasive BPH treatment.”
“The UroLift System was developed as an innovative solution for BPH that involves no cutting, heating or removal of tissue, in a simple procedure,” added co-founder Ted Lamson.
BPH, also known as an enlarged prostate, is non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate that occurs as men age. The condition affects over 680,000 men in the Australia alone. More than 40% of men in their 50s have BPH and over 80% of men in their 70s have BPH. The symptoms of BPH can cause loss of productivity, depression, and decreased quality of life.1 In addition, if left untreated the condition can worsen over time and cause permanent bladder damage.2
