The aim of this study was to use a systematic schedule, including urodynamics, to describe the rate of coexisting overactive bladder (OB) in patients with bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) caused by benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). We also identified differences between the patients with pure BOO compared with those with BOO combined with OB (BOO + OB).(More)
To study home uroflowmetry and to compare this method to free or "traditional" uroflowmetry in the evaluation of the patient with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and the relationship between the values of home uroflowmetry parameters and bladder outlet obstruction (BOO). Twenty-five patients (mean age, 67 years) with symptomatic BPH were(More)
AIMS There is no generally accepted consensus how to evaluate patients with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) suggestive of bladder outlet obstruction (BOO). We have tried to determine whether the most frequently used objective variables as prostate volume, IPS-score, maximum flow rate, residual urine volume, functional bladder capacity, and pressure-flow(More)
AIMS To evaluate the long-term outcome of transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT) in men with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), when allocation to the treatment-group was based on urodynamic diagnosis of bladder outlet obstruction (BOO). METHODS A total of 231 elderly men with(More)
