Performance studies of parameters for bladder outlet obstruction in BPH patients before and after a TURP in terms of sensitivity and specificity can easily be criticized because in roughly 25% of the patients it is not clear if the clinical symptoms are related to increased outlet obstruction or impaired bladder contractility. This abstract presents objective alternatives.
