Aquablation Therapy is the first surgical robotics system to receive a MedTech Innovation Briefing (MIB) from the National Institute for Health Care Excellence
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PROCEPT® BioRobotics Corporation today announced Aquablation Therapy received a MedTech Innovation Briefing (MIB) from the National Institute for Health Care Excellence (NICE), for benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) in the United Kingdom. NICE has recognized Aquablation Therapy is as effective as transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) for the removal of prostate tissue for men with BPH. A panel of clinical experts said the technology is innovative compared to the standard of care and offers additional benefits, such as increased ability to preserve sexual function. The clinical experts associated with the review stated that the technology has the potential to replace TURP and will challenge holmium laser enucleation for larger prostates.
Aquablation therapy is the first and only robotic surgical system to receive a MIB. MIBs are designed to support decision-making by health care professionals about the adoption and impact of new technology through detailed technical, clinical and economic assessments. New technology is selected on the basis of high demand on the topic, the potential for useful clinical outcomes, and whether evidence is available.
Mr. Neil Barber, one of the Briefings’ Clinical Experts and a PROCEPT BioRobotics consulting physician, stated, “We have been treating men successfully with Aquablation therapy for over seven years and believe it will soon become the standard of care for BPH. Patients ultimately want their work, leisure, and sex lives back without risking long-term catheterization or loss of sexual function. AquaBeam’s real time image guidance allows surgeons to see a patient’s anatomy through a multidimensional view, allowing for a fully customized treatment plan. The robot executes the treatment plan and guides the waterjet with speed and accuracy leading to a more consistent, predictable, and safer patient outcome. Moreover, it is much easier to train new urologists to become proficient using Aquablation therapy, which bodes well for the future.”
“The NICE MedTech Innovation Briefing further validates the value we believe Aquablation Therapy brings to patients, doctors, hospitals and healthcare systems around the world,” said Sham Shiblaq, Executive Vice President, Chief Commercial Officer of PROCEPT® BioRobotics. “The robust body of clinical evidence shows Aquablation therapy offers improved safety and durability when compared to transurethral resection of the prostate, which is the current gold standard surgical treatment option.”
