The treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia and the definition of bladder-outlet obstruction has preoccupied urologists and researchers in recent years. Bladder-outlet obstruction can be defined only by pressure-flow measurement. Various methods of analysis of pressure-flow data have been proposed. The Abrams-Griffiths nomogram is an easy method of classifying these data to distinguish between the presence or absence of obstruction. Using the values for the maximal flow and the corresponding… CONTINUE READING
