Effect of Preoperative Low Maximal Flow Rate on Postoperative Voiding Trials after the Midurethral Sling Procedure in Women with Stress Urinary Incontinence
ConclusionsOur results suggest that women with preoperative low Qmax experienced no definite unfavorable voiding problem from the MUS procedure compared to those with normal voiding function. MUS procedure may be regarded as a safe and successful procedure in SUI women with low Qmax. (Source: LUTS: Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms)

Correlation Between Residual Volume of Male Patients After Uroflowmetry and Random Residual Volume
ObjectivesOur aim was to examine correlation between Post‐void residual urine (PVR) after uroflowmetry and random PVR. MethodsMale patients reporting to the Urology outpatient clinic with LUTS were selected. Patients' age, prostate volume, bladder capacity, voided volume, maximum flow rate, average flow rate, random PVR and PVR after uroflowmetry were recorded. We evaluated the correlations between these parameters. Also we assessed if there was a difference between random PVR and PVR after uroflowmetry.
