Rapid responses are electronic letters to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on thebmj.com. Although a selection of rapid responses will be included online and in print as readers' letters, their first appearance online means that they are published articles. If you need the url (web address) of an individual response, perhaps for citation purposes, simply click on the response headline and copy the url from the browser window. Letters are indexed in PubMed.
The article mentions starting men with isolated storage LUTs on anti cholinergics, after lifestyle measures. This would be based on clinical features and manual assessment of prostate size to exclude BPH. I know a lot of GPs, myself included, would worry about precipitating retention if they did in fact have BPH (a urologist would often have a flow measurement by this point). Is this concern warranted in the authors’ opinion and experience?
