ABSTRACT
Prostate stents have widely been abandoned. Indeed, to date there are many minimally invasive treatment options which can benefit even patients who are medically unfit to undergo transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). We present three cases that illustrate that, in spite of all those new options, prostate stents, in particular the thermo-expandable ones that can easily be removed if necessary, have some value as a last resort in selected cases.
