OBJECTIVE To investigate whether the resistive index (RI) in symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) could be used as a surrogate index of the severity of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to BPH, and whether arteriosclerosis-related factors were associated with the RI in LUTS due to BPH. METHODS From January 2005 to April 2008, a total of 625 men with LUTS due to BPH were prospectively enrolled. Patients with heart failure, liver cirrhosis, prostatic cancer, neurogenic bladder… CONTINUE READING
