Areas of use and benefits
In the diagnosis of LUTS disorders in men, especially if invasive procedures such as TUMT or TURP are considered, pressure-flow examination is often carried out to conclude that it is an obstruction that is the cause of the symptoms. However, the examination has several limitations:
- In some cases, it does not give any conclusive results.
- All patients with chronic CAD or CISC belong to the group that cannot be evaluated with urodynamics.
- For patients who have certain neurological disorders at the same time, invasive procedure against BPE is usually discouraged.
- Urodynamic examinations are both time consuming and cost-driven and there are often long waiting times, which extends the time to cure for patients.
