This year thousands of men who suffer from Lower Urinary Track Symptoms (LUTS) will seek help,from their urologist. Trans-urethal Resection of the Prostate (TURP) is common. This procedure is not without risk and up to 30% of patients see no change in symptoms following the operation.
The CT3000 is designed to help identify those patients that have good bladder pressure, yet suffer from Bladder Outlet Obstruction (BOO). This group are known to demonstrate improvement following TURP.
