ABSTRACT To investigate whether the presence of detrusor overactivity (DO) influences storage symptoms after photoselective laser vaporization of the prostate (PVP) for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
A total of 149 patients who underwent PVP were included in this retrospective study. All patients underwent a preoperative evaluation including multichannel video urodynamics. The efficacy of the PVP was assessed at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months postoperatively using the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), uroflowmetry, postvoid residual urine volume, and 3-day frequency-volume charts (FVC). The patients were stratified into 2 groups (DO group vs non-DO group).
The IPSS and FVC showed that the storage symptoms were reduced significantly after the PVP in both groups (P<.05). Starting from 6 months after the PVP, the DO group (n=39) showed a significantly greater reduction in the subtotal storage symptom score than the non-DO group (n=110). When the improvement of storage symptoms was defined as a reduction of >or=50% in the subtotal storage symptom scores, the percentage of patients with improvement in the storage symptoms at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after the PVP was 13.9%, 25.9%, 47.8%, and 52.9% in the DO group, and 22.2%, 24.4%, 33.3%, and 33.3% in the non-DO group, respectively.
Our results show that storage and voiding symptoms significantly improved after the PVP. In addition, we found that men with DO might show more improvement of storage symptoms, after the PVP, than men without DO.

    ABSTRACT: To find out if detrusor overactivity (DO) is a predictor of moderate or severe storage lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) persisting 6 months after photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP).

    ABSTRACT: Objectives To investigate the correlation of preoperative overactive bladder symptoms and urodynamic parameters to the improvement of overactive bladder symptoms after transurethral resection of the prostate.MethodsA retrospective study was carried out in 128 patients with urodynamically proven benign prostatic obstruction that underwent transurethral resection of the prostate. All patients had preoperative urgency symptoms. The patients were divided into groups according to overactive bladder symptom severity and preoperative urodynamic parameters (presence and type of detrusor overactivity, degree of obstruction, bladder contractility). The 3-month postoperative changes in overactive bladder symptoms were then compared between the groups.ResultsOverall, there was a statistically significant improvement in mean overactive bladder symptoms score from 9.6 to 2.7 (P < 0.001). However, patients with preoperative mild overactive bladder symptoms had significantly lower postoperative overactive bladder symptoms scores than those with moderate or severe symptoms (P < 0.05). Patients with preoperative terminal detrusor overactivity had significantly higher overactive bladder symptoms scores compared with patients with phasic and no detrusor overactivity (P < 0.05), and were more likely to have persistent urge incontinence. Preoperative detrusor contractility and severity of obstruction did not affect postoperative overactive bladder symptom improvement.Conclusions Most patients with benign prostatic obstruction and overactive bladder symptoms experience an improvement in their symptoms after transurethral resection of the prostate. The presence of preoperative terminal detrusor overactivity might be negatively associated with this improvement. The preoperative severity of overactive bladder symptoms, detrusor contractility and degree of bladder outlet obstruction do not appear to have an effect.

    ABSTRACT: The American Urological Association/Society of Urodynamics Female Pelvic Medicine and Urogenital Reconstruction Adult Urodynamics Guideline was published with the intent of guiding the clinician in the role of urodynamics in the evaluation and management of complex lower urinary tract conditions. This article examines each guideline statement and attempts to provide clinical context for each statement. Key points are emphasized in the form of clinical case scenarios, which demonstrate application of the principles stressed in this guideline. It is hoped the reader will have a better clinical frame of reference relative to each statement in these guidelines.
