The PrecisionPoint® Transperineal Access System (PPTAS) is the first FDA cleared device allowing free-handed transperineal biopsy of the prostate. The device and technique eliminate the need for bowel prep and antibiotics prior to the prostate biopsy.
The procedure allows access to the prostate through the perineum or “taint”, avoiding the rectum completely. The procedure takes 15-20 minutes and can be performed under local or twilight anesthesia.
A recent study published in the British Journal of Urology found that 94% of missed cancers after transrectal prostate biopsies were located in the anterior region of the prostate. The PrecisionPoint® Transperineal Access System allows strategic sampling of the anterior portion of the prostate where these missed cancers have been found.
At Perineologic® , we understand your concern about the possibility of having prostate cancer. Your urologist is trained to perform a better, safer prostate biopsy using the PrecisionPoint® Transperineal Access System.
