Other Prostatitis Injection Methods

There are other doctors using local injection prostatitis treatment methods. They often do prostate transrectal injections. These injections are done directly through the rectum guided by ultrasound. These prostate transrectal injections are (1) very painful, (2) have the danger of introducing new bacteria into the prostate, (3) damage rectal tissue, (5) create rectal fissures, (4) damage the prostate, and (5) cause fibrous indurations, etc.

Local prostate transrectal injections cannot unclog the blocked tubes caused by the infection, so blockage and calcification will not be cleared. Prostate transrectal injections are limited to the same injection site because the structures of the rectum restrict adequate maneuvering of the ultrasound probe and needle. This restriction, and the large diameter needles often used, causes damage to the rectal wall and prostate.

Even though the patient may feel better after the initial prostate transrectal injection treatment, this effect is not long lasting. Pathogens usually still exist in the blocked areas, and new pathogens are introduced into the prostate from the rectum. The patient will often experience temporary and/or no relief at all. Those that experience some relief will often relapse in one to three months after receiving prostate transrectal injections.

Additionally, prostate transrectal injections will not work for patients who have prostatitis combined with infections in other areas, such as, seminal vesiculitis and epididymitis, etc. This is because transrectal injections are limited to the same injection site. Thus, the medicine cannot enter the seminal vesicles and epididymis in high enough concentration to eradicate the pathogens and clear blockage and calcification.

We do not recommend prostate transrectal injections. We know that prostate transrectal injections are dangerous. Prostate transrectal injections are not effective. They damage rectal tissue, cause rectal fissures and prostate scaring, and create new infections by introducing new pathogens into the prostate, etc.
