Device: AQUABEAM System
To utilizes proprietary heat-free high-pressure waterjet technology to resect and remove prostate tissue using the AQUABEAM system, which is a personalized image-guided tissue removal system.
Active Comparator: Control
Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP)
Procedure: Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP)
Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a type of prostate surgery done to relieve moderate to severe urinary symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate, a condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)
- Safety: Adverse Events Comparisons using Clavien-Dindo Grading System [ Time Frame: Three months post-treatment ]The primary safety endpoint is the proportion of subjects with adverse events rated as probably or definitely related to the study procedure classified as Clavien-Dindo Grade 2 or higher or any Grade 1 event resulting in persistent disability (e.g. ejaculatory disorder or erectile dysfunction) evidenced through 3 months post treatment. Note that the Clavien-Dindo classification scheme is for grading postoperative complications not events that reflect lack of effective treatment.
- Efficacy: Comparisons of IPSS [ Time Frame: Six months post-treatment ]The primary effectiveness endpoint is the IPSS change score from baseline to 6 months.
