Descripción:

OBJECTIVES: To analyse the improvement in both symptoms (IPSS questionnaire) and uroflowmetry parameters (Qmax) after treatment with different alpha-blockers in patients with LUTS and BPH. The efficacy of alpha-blocker treatment on urodynamic parameters was also analysed in some patients.

METHODS: An epidemiological, retrospective, multi-centre, and observational study. Twenty-five (24) Spanish healthcare centres recruited 443 patients with LUTS and BPH, and no other concurrent urological disease, they were on treatment with alpha-blockers. The study variables (demographic, physical examination, IPSS,

and urodynamic) were collected retrospectively at start of the study (at least 12 weeks after the start of treatment). Two-tailed statistical tests were performed with a 5% significance level using a SAS statistical software package version 9.0.

RESULTS: The IPSS score improved after 12 weeks of treatment (p<0.0001). The quality of life perception significantly improved (p<0.0001). The voiding volume and Qmax increased (p<0.0001) and the post-void residual urine decreased (p<0.0001) after treatment both in patients with moderate and severe symptoms. Other than filling pressure and involuntary contraction amplitude (p>0.05), all cystomanometry parameters improved(p<0.05). There were statistically significant differences (p<0.05) in the pressure flow study values, except for the detrusor contractility rate.

CONCLUSION: Alpha-blocker drug treatment of LUTS in patients with BPH leads to a significant improvement in symptoms and bladder voiding urodynamic parameters.
