INTRODUCTION: Penile plication (PP) for Peyronie's disease (PD) is an established treatment option for mild to moderate curvature, but scant data exist regarding its utility in severe deformities. AIM: To evaluate long-term outcomes among men undergoing PP for PD, comparing severe to mild/moderate penile deformities. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of patients who underwent PP for PD between 2009 and 2017. All patients underwent multiple parallel tunical plication without degloving...

INTRODUCTION: Sexual quality of life (SQoL) is a critical component of sexual health and is understudied in Sub-Saharan African settings with endemic HIV and sexually transmitted infection (STI). AIM: We sought to assess SQoL among heterosexual couples in Kisumu, Kenya, and how this was associated with HIV status, STIs, and sexual practices. METHODS: This was a prospective cohort study of community-recruited couples. SQoL, HIV status, herpes simplex virus (HSV)-2 status, bacterial vaginosis (BV), sexual practices, and sociodemographics were measured at baseline, 6 months, and 12 months...

INTRODUCTION: Scientific literature has experienced a significant growth in the number of authors per publication each year. Erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of the most common urologic conditions, accounting for over 2.9 million outpatient visits per year. Given the prevalence of ED and the large literature base available on this condition, bibliometric analysis of the ED literature could provide urologists and sexual medicine specialists with a better understanding of publication trends in this topic area...

INTRODUCTION: Although pediatric urologists have taken responsibility for initiating discussions on sexual and reproductive health with spina bifida patients, research shows that very few girls and women with spina bifida have ever discussed this topic with any physician. AIM: We sought to better understand pediatric urologists' gaps in knowledge and training needs in the sexual and reproductive health education of women with spina bifida with the goal of creating a tool kit to equip providers to have these discussions...

INTRODUCTION: Plaque incision and grafting (PIG) for Peyronie's disease (PD) is not devoid of complications such as erectile dysfunction and penile sensory changes. AIM: To define the rate and chronology of penile sensation loss after PIG surgery and to define predictors of such. METHODS: The study population consisted of patients with PD-associated penile curvature who underwent PIG surgery with at least 6 months of follow-up. Demographics and PD factors were recorded...

INTRODUCTION: The prevalence of gender dysphoria in children is not known; however, there are some data on the sex ratio of children referred to specialized gender identity clinics. AIM: We sought to examine the sex ratio of children, and some associated factors (age at referral and year of referral), referred to the Gender Identity Development Service in the United Kingdom, the largest such clinic in the world. METHODS: The sex ratio of children (N = 1,215) referred to the Gender Identity Development Service between 2000-2017 was examined, along with year of referral, age-related patterns, and age at referral...

INTRODUCTION: Orgasmic latency (OL) during partnered sex (POL) and OL during masturbatory sex (MOL) in women with and without orgasmic difficulty have received minimal attention. AIM: To ascertain POL and MOL both overall and more specifically in women with and without difficulty reaching orgasm and to explore interrelationships between masturbatory and partnered latencies and sexual satisfaction. METHODS: Participants for this study were 2,304 women drawn from community-based samples in the United States and Hungary who completed an investigator-derived questionnaire regarding their sexual history and response, including items related to frequency of masturbation and partnered sex, sexual desire, sexual arousal, orgasmic response, OL, distress, partner distress, and sexual satisfaction...

INTRODUCTION: The sliding technique (ST), commonly done with a subcoronal circumcising incision with penile degloving, has been used to restore penile size in patients with severe Peyronie's disease (PD) and erectile dysfunction, but with a potential risk of ischemic injury to the glans penis. AIM: To provide detailed surgical techniques regarding the nondegloving ventral incision and report our initial experience with this approach to perform the ST and penile prosthesis placement in patients with severe PD...

INTRODUCTION: Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common condition the treatment of which over the years has expanded from specialty care settings to various other clinical settings. A Process of Care Model was developed in 1999 to provide primary care physicians with guidance in the diagnosis and management of ED. AIM: This update to the Process of Care Model aims to reflect current ED management practices, because the study of ED has changed since 1999. METHODS: Updates to the Process of Care Model were developed during a meeting of international experts from diverse disciplines...

INTRODUCTION: Gender-affirming hormone treatment is known to affect adrenal androgen levels in adult individuals with gender dysphoria (GD). This may be clinically relevant because the adrenal gland plays a critical role in many different metabolic processes. AIM: This study aims to assess the effects of gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogs (GnRHa) treatment and gender-affirming hormone treatment on adrenal androgen levels in adolescents with GD. METHODS: In this prospective study, dehydroepiandrosterone-sulfate (DHEAS) and androstenedione values were measured every 6 months during 2 years of GnRHa treatment only, and 2 years of GnRHa combined with gender-affirming hormone treatment (estradiol or testosterone) in 73 transgirls and 54 transboys...

INTRODUCTION: According to theoretical models of sexual dysfunction, the complex association between male sexual function and subjective sexual well-being (ie, sexual satisfaction and distress) may be partially mediated by specific "consequences" of impaired function, but little research has assessed the frequency of specific consequences or their association with well-being. AIM: To pilot a scale assessing consequences of impaired male sexual function, and test whether specific consequences (eg, disruption of sexual activity, negative partner responses) mediated the association between sexual function and well-being...

INTRODUCTION: The actual definitions of paraphilic thoughts or behaviors and hypersexuality are still a matter of debate in the scientific community, and few studies have evaluated their psychopathological correlates in non-clinical samples of both men and women. AIM: This study aimed at shedding light on the gender differences in terms of frequency of paraphilic fantasies and behaviors, and the relationship among paraphilias, hypersexuality, and general psychopathology...

INTRODUCTION: Radical prostatectomy (RP) is associated with erectile dysfunction, largely mediated through cavernous nerve injury. There are robust pre-clinical data supporting a potential role for neuromodulatory agents in this patient population. This study assessed tacrolimus in improving erectile function recovery rates after RP ( number, NCT00106392). AIM: To define the utility of oral tacrolimus in improving erectile function recovery after nerve sparing radical prostatectomy...

INTRODUCTION: Several recent neuroimaging studies have identified functional and structural abnormalities in the cerebral cortex of lifelong premature ejaculation (LPE) patients, including task-related and resting-state brain function, and cortical thickness, although changes in white matter microstructure have not been reported. AIM: To assess the differences in white matter microstructure between LPE patients and healthy controls. METHODS: Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and tract-based spatial statistical analysis were used to detect differences in white matter microstructure between 32 LPE patients and 32 matched healthy controls...
