Dr. Eure discusses survey results of BPH impact on patient QOL


Dr. Gregg Eure, MD, FACS, Urology of Virginia, discusses a survey of approximately 1000 men aged ≥45 years with BPH (≥1 voiding symptom) who answered questions about their urinary symptoms. Over 45% of the surveyed men reported that urinary symptoms led them to avoid events or activities they enjoy. Many men reported nocturia, with 70% of respondents overall indicating that nocturia has affected their energy level. Almost one-fourth (about 22%) of the men reported sleeping in another room than their spouse/partner/significant other to avoid disturbing them with their nighttime bathroom use. Teleflex Incorporated conducted the survey.
