AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe epidemiology of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) is continuously evolving with an increasing life span and the prevalence of metabolic diseases, including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension. As a result, there is a substantial financial strain on health care.Recent FindingsRecent studies and clinical trials have strengthened the relationship of known risk factors of BPH and LUTS. These include metabolic syndrome, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and elevated serum dihydrotestosterone. Excessive consumption of red meat, saturated...

AbstractBackgroundBenign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) etiology remains poorly understood, but chronic low ‐grade inflammation plays a role. Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field therapy (PEMF) (1‐50Hz) are effective in reducing tissue inflammation.ObjectivesWe designed a pilot study to evaluate the effects of PEMF on prostate volume (PV) in BPH.Materials and MethodsThis is a prospective interventional trial on 27 na ïve patients with BPH and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). At baseline (V0), all patients had blood tests, trans ‐rectal ultrasound, questionnaires (IPSS, IIEF) and received a perineal PEMF device (Magcel...
