Abstract

Aim: The uroflowmetry data of a selected number of patients who took part to the QUIBUS study (366 traces selected after quality control by a central panel of reviewer) were evaluated for their relationships with age, prostate volume, and IPSS and ICS-BPH scores. Waiting time, flow time, voided volume, maximum flow rate (Q max) and average flow rate (Q ave) were the flow variables considered for analysis. Only measurements with total voided volume exceeding 100 ml were included. Results: An increasing percentage of subjects with voided volume ave nor Q max(p = n.s. at correlation analysis). In particular, Q max was max and Q ave, showing a worsening of urinary function for increasing values of prostate volume Q max was negatively correlated with IPSS total score and with most single items with the exception of two storage symptoms such as repeated urination and nocturia). Accordingly, Q max was inversely associated with the total score ICS-BPH for voiding symptoms to a higher extent (r = -0.31, p
