Please review the Instructions for Use for a complete listing of indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, potential adverse events and directions for use. The Optilume DCB is indicated for use in patients with obstructive urinary symptoms associated with anterior urethral stricture. It is designed to be used in adult males for urethral strictures of ≤3cm in length. The Optilume DCB is contraindicated for patients with known hypersensitivity to paclitaxel or structurally related compounds and patients with urologic implants such as penile implants or artificial urinary sphincters. Paclitaxel may be present in semen after treatment with the Optilume DCB. The risks associated with paclitaxel in semen and the impact on sperm and spermatogenesis are unknown. Men should abstain or use a condom for 30 days and men with partners of child-bearing potential should use highly effective contraceptive and avoid fathering children for 6 months after treatment. Monitor for signs of anaphylaxis or hypersensitivity to paclitaxel. Potential risks can include, but are not limited to, the following: blood in the urine (hematuria), painful urination (dysuria), urinary tract infection (UTI), urinary retention, and stricture recurrence.
