Limitations of the current usage of the term "lower urinary tract symptoms" and its classifications are briefly reviewed and an anatomical- functional and aetiological classification of lower urinary tract symptoms is proposed to facilitate understanding and diagnosis. Further, the limi- tations of available scoring systems for lower urinary tract symptoms as applied to therapeutic decision making in obstructive BPH are summarised and a Storage Insufficiency Symptom Trouble Score (SI-STS) and Emptying In- sufficiency Symptom Trouble Score (EI-STS) are proposed for facilitating therapeutic decision making in obstructive BPH. A decision-making matrix is also presented for choosing appropriate treatment.
