Are Urinary Symptoms Interfering with Your Life? Do You Suffer from the Following?
What is BPH?
If you suffer from these symptoms, you are not alone. Millions of men in the world have a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or enlargement of the prostate. Nearly half of all men in their 50s and over 70% of men in their 60s have BPH.1 The prostate is about the size of a walnut and is located at the neck of the bladder. For most men, starting around age 40 their prostate begins to grow, and can grow to the size of an apricot or even a lemon. This enlarged prostate puts pressure on the urethra, the tube that carries urine out of the body. This pressure blocks the natural flow of urine, causing uncomfortable symptoms and irritation. While there are surgical treatments and medications available for BPH, they do not work for everyone, and can also cause unwanted side effects, including sexual dysfunction.

If you are living with symptoms of BPH and are 45 years or older, you may qualify for the BREEZE Clinical Study. This study will evaluate a new treatment, the Zenflow Spring System, to relieve symptoms of an enlarged prostate. The Spring® Treatment is intended to provide a patient-friendly alternative to current options that require piercing or cutting of prostate tissue to relieve BPH symptoms. Participation in this study is free of charge for the patient and you will be reimbursed for your time.
What is the Spring® Treatment?
The Zenflow Spring is an investigational device designed to relieve the symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate. This minimally invasive treatment can be done as an outpatient procedure, meaning patients can go home the same day. The Spring props open the narrowed urethra, improving urinary flow. Although the Spring is designed to be permanent, it can be removed at any time. Clinical studies to date have reported promising outcomes with respect to symptom relief, urinary flow rates, and preservation of sexual function.
Additional Study Detail:
The Zenflow Spring System is currently being offered at select centers in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand through the BREEZE Clinical Study. If you qualify and choose to join the study, you will receive the Zenflow Spring Treatment and all study-related care at no cost. Following the procedure, you will be seen by your study doctor over a 5-year period to check on how you are doing, and to provide feedback about your experiences. You may also be compensated for your time and travel to attend these visits.
