Abstract

This Canadian guidance summarises the state-of-the-art knowledge regarding benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and highlights the essential diagnostic and therapeutic information in a Canadian context.

The guidelines are directed toward the typical male patient over 50 years of age, presenting with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) believed to be associated with benign prostatic obstruction (BPO). They address both diagnostic and treatment issues.
