dc.description.abstractObjective: To review current treatment guidelines (international and national) on managing male lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and to summarize them for easy application in clinical practice. Methods: A group of European urology specialists from primary and secondary care reviewed current treatment guidelines for male LUTS. Results: The most appropriate recommendations for managing male LUTS were identified from existing international and national guidelines, and were summarized and simplified for use as a quick reference guide for healthcare professionals managing LUTS in adult males. Conclusions: Current guidelines for managing male LUTS were developed by urologists and are too complex for easy application in routine practice. This brief summary of current guidance should help to achieve consistent adoption of recommendations for best practice, improve working relationships between primary care specialists and urologists and clarify which patients' treatments should be managed entirely by urology specialistsen
