About this book

​   Benign prostatic enlargement (BPE) is one of the most common diseases in older men and it is caused by an histopathological condition called “benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Clinical manifestations of BPH include symptoms, signs and sequelae of bladder outlet obstruction caused by the enlarged prostate. Although no longer life-threatening, the prevalence of moderate-to-severe urinary symptoms in the community is high, increasing from 22% among men aging 50-59 years to 45% among those in the seventh decade of life. Male LUTS/BPH Made Easy is a full-color comprehensive reference on the management of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) due to Benign Prostatic Enlargement (BPE). Aimed at urologists in residence and training, Male LUTS/BPH Made Easy, updates the reader on the most current treatments and assists in clinical decision making based on the latest evidence.
