INTRODUCTION: Filling cystometry and pressure flow studies (PFS) are the most widespread used invasive urodynamic techniques in the assessment of male LUTS. However, these techniques are time- and cost-intensive. Intravesical prostatic protrusion (IPP) has been proposed as non-invasive method used to diagnose bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) in men with male lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). The purpose of the present review is to analyze the diagnostic and therapeutic relevance of IPP...

BACKGROUND: Intravesical prostatic protrusion (IPP) is a type of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) adenoma, and it plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of bladder outlet obstruction in patients with lower urinary tract syndromes (LUTS/BPH). AIMS: The goal of this study was to investigate the effect of a combination therapy with finasteride and doxazosin on IPP in BPU/LUTS patients. METHODS: A total of 322 BPH patients with enlarged prostatic volume as well as moderate to severe symptom scores were enrolled and divided into four groups according to the degree of IPP (IPP > 10 mm, 5-10 mm, <5 mm and no IPP) in this study...

PURPOSE: To investigate the correlation between magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-derived prostate parameters and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) type with the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: In all, 61 patients (median age, 60; range, 41-81 years) who underwent preoperative MRI and prostatectomy were included in this retrospective study. The MRI-based parameters including total prostate volume (TPV), transition zone (TZ) volume (TZV), TZ index, intravesical prostatic protrusion (IPP), the anterior fibromuscular stroma (AFMS) distance, prostatic urethral angle, bladder wall thickness, urethral wall thickness, urethral compression, urethral wall changes, and BPH type were correlated with total IPSS, IPSS-storage symptom (IPSS-ss), IPSS-voiding symptom (IPSS-vs), and responses to the individual IPSS questions using Spearman (ρ) or Pearson (r) correlation coefficients, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), and multiple linear regression...

INTRODUCTION: Recurrent prostate adenoma is a long-term complication following transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). Transurethral enucleation and resection of the prostate (TUERP) is more appealing, since the nodular adenoma can be completely removed through endoscopy. TUERP is also hypothesised to result in a lower frequency of recurrent adenoma. This study aimed to compare the early outcomes of TUERP and TURP, and assess the feasibility and safety of TUERP. METHODS: We compared the outcome of 81 patients who underwent TUERP with that of 85 patients who underwent TURP...

Urodynamic tests are the standard diagnostic method for lower urinary tract dysfunctions (LUTD). However, these tests are invasive. The current review describes the noninvasive imaging techniques that have been used to monitor LUTD. The main imaging technologies that have been applied in diagnosing LUTD were 2D ultrasonography, Doppler ultrasonography, and near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). Ultrasonographic parameters, such as bladder wall thickness (BWT), detrusor wall thickness (DWT), and ultrasound-estimated bladder weight (UEBW), have been proposed as surrogates for bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) or detrusor overactivity (DO)...
