ABSTRACT

Introduction: Our objective was to assess the clinical importance of post void volume and International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) questionnaire in men with lower urinary tracts symptoms (LUTS) in men. Materials and Methods: The present study was designed to assess the correlation between IPSS and uroflowmetry parameters. This study was conducted among 215 men [mean ± standard deviation: 61.59 ± 13.903 (17- 94 years)] at clinical research laboratory complex, Faculty of Medicine, University of Peradeniya. Interview based questionnaire with IPSS was used to assess the severity of their symptoms in their native language. Results: There was a statistically significant positive correlation between international prostate symptom score and bladder residual volume as a percentage of total bladder capacity (Pearson correlation: r = 0.384; p < 0.05). The mean total IPSS was 16.88 and mean post void volume was 57.98 ml. Over the past month, 25.1% of the study sample had the feeling of not completely emptying their bladder more than half of the time after finishing urination and their mean residual volume percentage was 30.07%. Conclusions: Based on our results, there is a significant correlation between the value of total IPSS and the residual volume. It is needed to do further investigations with a large sample over broader geographical area.

Keywords: Lower urinary tract symptoms, International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS), Uroflowmetry, Post void volume, Sri Lanka.
