Butterfly Retraction Device (Urology, BPH)
Butterfly Medical is developing a minimally invasive treatment for enlarged prostate (BPH).
BPH is the most prevalent disease in aging men, causing difficulties in urination, significantly affecting quality of life. Drugs and surgical procedures are widely used but are associated with side effects and complications.
The Butterfly device is a metallic implant, delivered in a matter of minutes, under local anesthesia. The Butterfly device retracts the lateral lobes of the prostate and restores urine flow without inflicting any damage to the prostate tissue.
