  1. Prevalence of lower urinary tract symptoms in Austria as assessed by an open survey of 2,096 men.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    The lack of knowledge on the prevalence of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in German-speaking countries prompted us to assess this issue in Austria by means of a large open-scale study.

    Methods 

    A community sample of 2,096 men equal to or older than 20 years, who participated in a health survey in Vienna, completed the recently validated German translation of the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS).

    In addition, a detailed urological history and a physical evaluation (including digital rectal examination) were obtained.

    Results 

    The mean age in the study population was 47+14 (range 20-96) years.

    The mean IPSS increased from 2.1 (20-29 years, n=128) to 2.6 (30-39, n=322), 3.0 (40-49, n=902), 5.8 (50-59, n=325), 5.7 (60-69, n=219), 6.4 (70-79, n=158), and 6.1 (=80 years, n=42).

    The proportion of patients with moderate/severe LUTS defined by an IPSS>7 increased from 6.3% (20-29 years) to 8.4 (30-39), 11.1 (40-49), 27.1 (50-59), 28.3 (60-69), 36 (70-79), and 35.7% (=80 years).

    Overall, 7.8% of the men aged = 50 years previously underwent transurethral resection of the prostate.

    In men aged 50-59 years, this proportion was 1.3%, and it increased to 4.2,20.9, and 27.5% in those aged 60-69,70-79, and = 80 years, respectively. 7% of the men had previously consulted an urologist for micturition problems.

    In all life decades, these patients had higher IPSS levels than those with no previous urological visit. (...)
