What happens to the urethra during the procedure, if the entire prostate is going to be destroyed?

The urethra may be damaged during HIFU, but because it is made up of a different type of tissue than the prostate, it will regenerate. The bladder neck and urinary sphincter are far more important to preserving continence, and therefore during the procedure they are identified and avoided.
