Figure 2: (a) IPSS scores and (b) QOL scores prior to intervention with PUL and at two postoperative follow-up visits. Solid lines represent the unadjusted model, which reflect the scores from the raw data. Dashed lines represent the adjusted model with projected scores based on any given patient with the median values for each potentially confounding variable (i.e., 66.4 years of age, not African-American, 1 comorbidity, on medical therapy, without an obstructive median lobe, and with 1.5 months at the first follow-up visit [follow-up 1] and 7.7 months at the second follow-up visit [follow-up 2]). IPSS: International Prostate Symptom Score; QOL: quality of life; PUL: prostatic urethral lift
