PROCEPT BioRobotics announces presentation of late breaking post-market survey at the Japanese Urological Association


PROCEPT BioRobotics® Corporation (Nasdaq: PRCT) (the “Company”), a surgical robotics company focused on advancing patient care by developing transformative solutions in urology, today announced the presentation of a late breaking post-market survey at the Japanese Urological Association (JUA) Annual Meeting on positive Aquablation therapy outcomes for men in Japan with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

“The data presented at the JUA showcase the global reach of Aquablation therapy and its safety and effectiveness in treating men across geographic regions and demographics,” said Reza Zadno, CEO of PROCEPT BioRobotics. “The reproducible results observed in numerous real-world Aquablation therapy cases continue to support a paradigm shift in the surgical treatment of BPH.”

Data Highlights

  • 103 men were treated with a mean age and baseline international prostate symptom score (IPSS) of 71 ± 7 and 18 ± 9, respectively
  • Mean prostate volume was 82 ml (range 33-242 ml)
  • Proportion of patients who were on BPH medication, had prior BPH surgery or catheter use for retention were 58%, 1% and 26%, respectively
  • No reports of pad-use incontinence or serious device-related adverse events
  • Three-month average IPSS improved to 7 ± 5
  • Quality-of-life baseline score was 5 ± 1 and at three-month follow-up, improved to 2 ± 2

“It was an honor to deliver the late breaking presentation that treated only Japanese men with LUTS due to BPH,” said Dr. Nobuyuki Hinata, Professor and Chairman of Hiroshima University Hospital. “The results showed the contemporary Aquablation procedural safety in Japanese men is exceptional in a broad range of prostate sizes along with significant symptom reduction. This data align with the numerous global publications and real-world data that have eclipsed 50,000 procedures.”
