Diagnosis and assessment of BPH: objective parameters

Show Summary Details

Preview

• There is no clear relationship between BPE, BPO, and LUTS; therefore, each component of the BPH-disease has to be separately evaluated and quantified • The diagnostic workup has to exclude other causes of prostatic enlargement, bladder outlet obstruction, and LUTS • BPH-associated complications should be detected at baseline • Assessment of BPH includes recommended and optional tests. After baseline investigation, the physician should be able to determine if and how the patient should be treated.
