Third International Chronic Prostatitis Network

Ultrasound-guided infiltration in chronic prostatitis

F. Guercini, C. Pajoncini, P. Rosi, M. Porena, Department of Urology, University of Perugia, Italy
Video Abstract
When treating chronic prostatitis the urologist is faced with an obstacle which cannot apparently be overcome: the gap between the therapeutic efficacy of what can be prescribed and effective disease eradication. Failure to achieve a complete cure is due fibrous calcifications of pathogens in the prostate parenchyma which remain indestructible as they cannot be reached by pharmaceutical agents. This video film shows how to breach and explode these fibrous calcifications by using a transperineal puncture and ultrasound guidance to deliver an appropriate cocktail of drugs and cortisone.
