iTind Q & A
What is iTind?
Temporary implanted nitinol device (iTind) is a minimally invasive treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a condition that describes an enlarged prostate.
iTind gently reshapes your urethra, the opening that allows urine to pass out of your body, within 5-7 days. The procedure doesn’t require incisions or other invasive procedures.
Urologic Surgeons of Arizona provides iTind procedures on an outpatient basis for adult men who experience symptoms of BPH. This treatment offers immediate and long-lasting relief of symptoms without the need for downtime or surgery.
Is iTind right for me?
iTind is a treatment option for men who have persistent symptoms of BPH but can’t find relief with medications and other therapies.
When you have BPH, the enlargement of your prostate gland can block the flow of urine from your bladder. The condition can also lead to problems in your kidneys and urinary tract.
Urologic Surgeons of Arizona provides comprehensive diagnostic evaluations for BPH symptoms. Our providers can determine if iTind treatment is a good fit for you based on the severity of your symptoms and your existing health and lifestyle.
iTind may be an effective treatment option for sexually active men who are looking for an alternative to surgery and medications.
How does iTind work?
iTind is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the implantation of a small device into the prostatic urethra. Our providers use a small cystoscope to place the device inside your urethra without the need for incisions.
The device puts pressure on three points in your urethra and causes the tissue to slowly expand. Within 5-7 days, the urethral opening becomes wide enough to allow urine to pass through easily.
Side effects during iTind treatment are minimal. You may experience an increase in the frequency of urination or feel a burning sensation when you urinate. However, these symptoms are temporary and resolve after you complete treatment.
After your procedure, Our providers removes the device completely using a silicone catheter. You can go back to your usual activities right away without any limitations.
