LUTS
Explanation:
Or Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms.
The normal French abbreviation is TUBA (troubles urinaires du bas appareil), which makes me think your abbreviation is something like symptômes de la vessie urinaire basse.
LUTS are often due to BPH, which fits in with the context.
It might be worth confirming with your customer.

agree  Helen Genevier: I'm convinced - French might be symptômes des voies urinaires basses, though v. few google hits

  -> Tks - I think your idea of voies urinaires is a lot better - that would defintely tie in with urinary tract. I think SVUB must be their own term for TUBA.
