Objective To study the clinical significance of the International Prostatic Symptom Score, postvoid residual volume and maximum urinary flow rate in evaluation of the preoperatve parameters of benign prostatic hyperplasia(BPH). Methods In total 86 consecutive patients aged over 50 with minor urinary tract symptoms were enrolled in the study. They were diagnosed suffering from BPH and had received transurethral resection of the prostate. All the patients were evaluated with IPSS and QOL, PVR and Qmax. According to the result of treatment, the 86 cases were divided into two groups: the satisfied group (SG, 72 cases) and dissatisfied group(DG, 14 cases). All the relevant data of the two groups were statistically analyzed, including preoperative IPSS and QOL, PVR, Qmax. Results There was no significant difference (P>0.05) in IPSS, QOL, irritative symptom score and PVR between SG and DG. Conclusion No strong evidence supports IPSS, QOL and PVR to be the surgical indicators. but high obstructive symptom scores indicates a favorable postoperative treatment outcome. 2. Low preoperative Qmax of patients suffering from BPH might have a favorable treatment outcome. It suggests that Qmax might be an indicator for choice of surgery. Source
