Champagne Procedure (iTind)                                                

The iTind, (Temporarily Implanted Nitinol Device) is a safe and effective new procedure to treat the symptoms of enlarged prostate (BPH) in men.  The iTind procedure uses a 5-day implant to reshape the prostatic urethra and create new channels through which urine can flow.

 

The iTind provides immediate and long-lasting relief from symptoms with no known side effects, and without the need for drugs, surgery or a permanent implant.  It offers a new method for relieving BPH symptoms in a simple and safe procedure, without the need for post-operative urinary catheterization or lengthy recovery and an almost immediate return to normal daily activies.

 

On this page you will find more details about the procedure, however if you have any questions or interest in this regard please do not hesitate to contact us here at the Forbury Clinic and we can put you in contact with one of our consultant urological surgeons.

Implantation of the iTind is performed as an outpatient procedure.  You may receive some light sedation and local anaesthetic.  Once the iTind is in place you should be able to urinate freely, without the need of a catheter and will be released home.

 

The iTind implant remains in place for between 5 and 7 days.  After this time you will return to have the iTind removed as it is not a permanent emplant and will be completely removed at the end of the procedure.  The new channels formed continue to provide relief for years to come.

 

The iTind was uniquely designed to ensure easy and accurate positioning, and to avoid trauma to sperm ducts and urethral sphincters, thereby eliminating the risk of retrograde ejaculation, erectile dysfunction and incontinence.

The iTind device is implanted in the prostate in a folded configuration. Once implanted, it begins to expand and exert pressure at three precise points within the prostatic urethra.

How does the iTind device work?

The Procedure

Over the course of 5 days, this continuous pressure creates three new longitudinal channels through which urine can exit the bladder, flow through the urethra and out of the body. After 5 days, the device is completely removed. The new channels continue to provide relief of BPH symptoms for years to come.
