Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) is a term that represents a wide variety of complaints that are extraordinarily common among patients across the demographic spectrum. The nature, severity and clinical implications of these symptoms can vary dramatically. As a result, assessment and management can present significant challenges in the primary care setting—but they don’t necessarily have to. The purpose of this session is to present a framework for assessing LUTS based on a simple (but not simplified!) understanding of “normal” lower urinary tract function.
