Pathophysiology of BPH, symptoms, and symptom scores

Show Summary Details

Preview

• Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) reflect outlet obstruction and irritative symptoms • Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a histological diagnosis and not a “disease”. • Prostatic enlargement is not closely correlated with the degree of obstruction to urine flow or to the presence of LUTS • Over active bladder is common in many patients with BPH and LUTS.
