|Aims and Objectives|
Longevity is increasing, and in male patients the complaints of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) increases. Evaluation of LUTS should be quick, easy, cheap, not too bothersome, and minimally invasive. Urodynamics is invasive, time-consuming, and expensive. A number of resources in the diagnostic armamentarium could increase the opportunity for selecting less invasive tests such as: detrusor wall thickness, intravesical prostatic protrusion, uroflowmetry, minimal invasive urodynamics. The objectives of this workshop are to discuss the advantages and efficacy of these methods in comparison to urodynamics in order to provides alternatives that might better suit the needs of patients.
