Hyperthermia of the prostate
In local hyperthermia of the prostate, only this area is – locally – warm. The treatment of prostate hyperthermia is suitable for prostate cancer and benign prostatic hyperplasia. Through a catheter which is guided via the urethra to the urinary bladder, an energy field is built up in the prostate.
Through the catheter set electric waves are transmitted in the prostate tissue, which will release heat and energy. Overheating leads the tumor cells to oxygen deficiency, so that there is an excess acidity and thus correcting the metabolic disorder within the cells. Characterized, it induces programmed cell death (apoptosis). In general, the prostate hyperthermia is well tolerated. Specific medications or anesthesia are not necessary.
- Thermal destruction of tumor cells
- poisoning of the malignant tissue
- Inhibition of repair mechanism
- potentiation of chemotherapy and radiotherapy
- stimulating the immune system
