Prostatitis, abacterial, hyperthermia

Local hyperthermia to the prostate may be helpful in the relief of abacterial prostatitis according to a study from the Institute of Urology at Tel Aviv University, Israel. The patients in this study had failed to respond to other treatments over a course of several years. Twenty-five percent had complete loss of their symptoms, fifty percent had partial response, with improvement in symptoms, while the remaining twenty-five percent did not benefit.
