Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Quality of Recovery [ Time Frame: 1 Month ]
    Primary effectiveness will be achieved when 80% (95% lower confidence limit) of subjects achieve a score of 80 or more on the Quality of Recovery Visual Analog Scale (QoR VAS) by the one month follow-up visit. The VAS scale is 0-100, with 100 being 100% recovery.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • IPSS Scores at Baseline and 12 Month Follow-up [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]

    The International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) is an 7 question written screening tool used to screen for, rapidly diagnose, track the symptoms of, and suggest management of the symptoms of the disease benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Lower scores are indicative of less symptoms.

    Score Correlation[1] 0-7 Mildly symptomatic 8-19 Moderately symptomatic 20-35 Severely symptomatic


  • IPSS 12 Month Change From Baseline [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]

    The International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) is an 7 question written screening tool used to screen for, rapidly diagnose, track the symptoms of, and suggest management of the symptoms of the disease benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) using a total score from 0 - 35.

    The larger number for Change in IPSS Score 12 Month Follow-up from Baseline, demonstrate the improvement in IPSS.


  • IPSS 12 Month Percent (%) Change From Baseline [ Time Frame: 12 Months ]

    The International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) is an 7 question written screening tool used to screen for, rapidly diagnose, track the symptoms of, and suggest management of the symptoms of the disease benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) using a total score from 0 - 35.

    The larger Percent (%) Change in IPSS Score at 12 Month Follow-up from Baseline, demonstrates the improvement in IPSS (the mean score was change by X %). Note: Percent (%) Change: is the mean % change of each subject.

  • Qmax Scores at Baseline and 12 Month Follow-up [ Time Frame: 12 Month ]
    QMAX indicates the maximum flow rate during a Uroflow in mL/sec. QMAX is used as an indicator for the diagnosis of enlarged prostate. A lower QMAX may indicate that the enlarged prostate puts pressure on the urethra.

    QMAX indicates the maximum flow rate during a Uroflow in mL/sec. QMAX is used as an indicator for the diagnosis of enlarged prostate. A lower QMAX may indicate that the enlarged prostate puts pressure on the urethra. The larger number for Change of the QMAX value at 12 Month Follow-up minus Baseline, demonstrate the improvement in QMAX

Enrollment: 51
Study Start Date: April 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2018
Primary Completion Date: October 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: UroLift® System
Single-arm of qualified subjects receiving UroLift® System intervention.
Device: UroLift® System
The NeoTract UroLift System is a medical device approved for sale in the European Union, Australia, and Canada. The UroLift® System is indicated for the treatment of symptoms due to urinary outflow obstruction secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men 50 years of age or older. During the procedure, an implant is delivered into the prostatic lobe obstructing the urethra and restricting urine flow. The distal end of the device is used to compress the lobe then the implant is delivered to retain the lobe in position, thereby increasing the urethral opening and reducing the fluid obstruction through the prostatic urethra.

Detailed Description:
The randomized portion of the study is a prospective, multicenter, non-blinded, single arm trial evaluating procedure tolerability and surgical recovery following the UroLift® system procedure when conducted with local anesthesia. All subjects undergo UroLift system treatment and will be followed through 5 years after receiving the investigational device.
