First patient completes 18 months with the Butterfly Medical device
First patient completes 18 months with the Butterfly device. The 83 year-old patient suffered from severe symptoms associated with BPH (enlarged prostate), affecting his ability to urinate and needed to use a permanent catheter for the 2 years prior to joining the Butterfly Medical clinical trial. The Butterfly procedure took 10 minutes and was done under local anesthesia. Since the insertion of the Butterfly device, this patient has been able to urinate freely and his quality of life improved dramatically.
