Abstract

Autonomic nervous system (ANS) activity may play an important role in the development of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). Men with severe LUTS and men with mild or no LUTS completed the Valsalva maneuver, quantitative sudomotor axon reflex test, tilt-table, and deep breathing tests. There were no differences between men with severe LUTS compared to men with mild or no LUTS (all P values > 0.05). Systemic ANS tests may not be useful in detecting the underlying physiologic changes that lead to LUTS in aging men.
