Results: 62 patients currently have completed 6 month follow up   Statistically significant reduction in mean symptom severity score (p=<0.0001) with mean SS score of 59.4 pre-UAE and 24.2 post UAE.   Statistically significant increase in mean quality of life (QOL) (p=<0.0001) with mean QOL s[...]

Conclusion: The cohort of 62 patients demonstrates good overall response to UAE with improvement in HR-QOL (p<0.05) using UFS-QOL assessment.   Bladder symptoms are predominantly improved with UAE (p=<0.05) as assessed by the King’s Health Questionnaire.  This adds to previous evidence suggestin[...]
