Patients were followed up at 1-month and 3-month intervals. All patients were given both questionnaires. The correlation test was used to assess the correlation between two symptom scores and various parameters. There was a statistically significant difference in the number of patients requiring assistance to fill the questionnaires according to their education level. However, most patients with a low education level are not able to answer the IPSS questionnaire correctly. There are many advantages in using the VPSS.

It is easy to understand and simple to use even for elderly and less-educated persons. However, limited data are available about its usefulness and applicability in Indian population. Sri Sathya Sai Institute is a tertiary care center with daily outpatient visits of around — patients. Ethical committee approval was sought for the study according to our institute's protocol. The study was conducted from March to September Uroflowmetry, serum prostate-specific antigen, renal function tests, and ultrasonography for prostate were done.

Various parameters including the total scores, uroflowmetry parameters, age, education level, and assistance required to fill the questionnaires were noted and compared using chi-square test. The correlation test was used to assess correlation between two symptom scores and various parameters. All patients were divided into two groups based on their education level. Relationship between education level and requirement of assistance to complete the questionnaires.

Both the questionnaires were evaluated for correlation. The patient is given five options for the first seven questions and each option indicates severity of that symptom. The total score ranges from 0 to 35 and LUTSs are classified as mild to severe depending on the total score.

Studies have shown that this question is the single best predictor of outcome related to treatment prescribed. One of the major problems associated with the IPSS questionnaire is its complex nature. Our results were found to be consistent with all these studies. Because this study included data from a single institution, a potential selection bias may have occurred.
