The new procedure, called Rezūm, is a minimally invasive treatment that uses steam to kill cells and shrink the prostate and can be used on a wider range of anatomies.

NxThera partnered with Kablooe to develop this bph treatment technology, and to take it from a concept to a life-saving medical device. It became widely available in the U.S. in the second half of 2016.

Featured in an article in the Wall Street Journal, this new procedure looks promising for treating men with enlarged prostates.
