The biodegradable balloon implant deployment is performed in a quick and minimally invasive transperineal technique into the prostate-rectum interspace using a proprietary insertion device. The procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia and guidance of transrectal ultrasound. Once the balloon is in situ, it is inflated with sterile saline to reach its final configuration. The balloon implant remains inflated during the entire treatment period and completely biodegrades in the body after six months.
