Clinical Evidence

Choosing the right treatment option may require a thorough conversation with your patient and an understanding of the technologies as well as the clinical evidence.

The International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) is an eight-question screening tool used to screen, diagnose, track the symptoms and suggest symptom management solutions for BPH. The below graphs reflect how patients who had undergone laser or water vapour therapy showed a decreased IPSS score as time progressed.
