In an attempt to increase our understanding of the clinical syndrome of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) an analysis was made of the association between prostate volume as measured by transrectal ultrasound and several reported urodynamically determined urethral resistance parameters. Two types of obstruction can be recognized on the basis of urodynamic data: a compressive type characterized by a high urethral opening pressure and a prolonged isovolumetric contraction phase before urine flow… CONTINUE READING
