Male urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) can oftentimes be tricky to treat. There are three categories of male LUTS: storage or irritative symptoms, voiding or obstructive symptoms, and post micturition. This session helps the provider focus on symptoms and deemphasize the perceived role of any specific organ in the etiology of such symptoms using urodynamics and UroCuff in the treatment of symptoms. Review and interpretation of urodynamic studies as well as how to interpret UroCuff results is discussed.
