  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the transarterial supraselective embolization (TSE) is a technique as effective as transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) for the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

Condition Intervention
Transurethral Resection of Prostate Artery Embolization Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms Procedure: Transarterial Supraselective Embolization of the prostate Procedure: Transurethral Resection of the prostate

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomised Clinical Trial to Compare Efficacy and Safety of the Transarterial Supraselective Embolization of the Prostate Compared Versus the Transurethral Resection of the Prostate to Treat the Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms Due to Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia.
