BACKGROUND: Some studies have reported that exposure to depression increases the risk of erectile dysfunction (ED), whereas others have observed no association. Moreover, additional studies have reported that exposure to ED increases the risk of depression. AIM: To identify and quantitatively synthesize all studies evaluating the association between ED and depression and to explore factors that may explain differences in the observed association. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis...

INTRODUCTION: Cavernoscopy (using a cystoscope in the corpora) is traditionally used to retrieve rear tip extenders (RTEs) that are embedded at the time of removal or replacement of inflatable penile prostheses. AIM: To describe indications and techniques of cavernoscopy. METHODS: We describe our preferred method of cavernoscopy to retrieve retained rear tips and present a thorough review of the literature regarding cavernoscopy. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Ability of cavernoscopy to retrieve embedded rear tips without causing complications...

AIM: To describe a technique for surgical correction of adult buried penis, including a technique for skin graft harvesting from the escutcheonectomy specimen itself, with an emphasis on remaining open questions in the literature. METHODS: We present our method for surgical correction of adult buried penis with a review of the literature. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Components of successful buried penis repair include return of directed voiding, elimination of local skin inflammation and infection, improvement in hygiene, return of sexual functioning, cosmesis, and patient satisfaction...

BACKGROUND: Self-reported orgasm, perception of partner's orgasm, and misperception of partner's orgasm have each been correlated with individual sexual and relationship satisfaction, but these associations have rarely included dyadic data, have not fully accounted for potentially confounding variables such as sexual communication, and have never been simultaneously studied with a nationally representative sample. AIM: To provide a more complete picture of how the orgasmic experience within the heterosexual couple influences individual and partner sexual and relationship satisfaction...

BACKGROUND: Peyronie's disease (PD) is a chronic fibrotic disease of the penis affecting a significant number of men worldwide without effective medical treatments. Myofibroblasts are pivotal in the pathogenesis of PD. Adenosine and adenosine receptors have been suggested to be involved in the pathophysiology of fibrosis. AIM: To understand the role of adenosine receptors in myofibroblast transformation in PD. METHODS: Fibroblasts were isolated from the non-PD tunica albuginea (TA) tissue and PD plaque tissue and were transformed into myofibroblasts using transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1...

BACKGROUND: Proximal corporal perforation at time of dilation, although rare, may occur due to factors related to patient anatomy, presence of intra-cavernosal fibrosis, and/or surgical technique. AIM: To describe tools and techniques designed to prevent and identify proximal corporal perforation, and maneuvers to minimize the risk of subsequent cylinder migration once proximal perforation has been recognized, such that the operation may proceed and result in an acceptable outcome...

BACKGROUND: Limited information is available on the performance characteristics of 2 questionnaires commonly used in clinical research, the Psychosexual Daily Questionnaire (PDQ) and the Derogatis Interview for Sexual Function (DISF)-II Assessment, especially in older men with low testosterone (T) and impaired sexual function. AIM: To determine reliability of PDQ and DISF-II by assessing the correlation within and between domains in the questionnaires and to define clinically meaningful changes in sexual activity (PDQ question 4 [Q4]) and desire (DISF-II sexual desire domain [SDD]) domains...

AIM: We sought to evaluate whether the administration of phenylephrine (PE) at concentrations higher than those described in guidelines resulted in any significant changes in vital signs or impacted outcomes. METHODS: After receiving institutional review board approval, we retrospectively reviewed the charts of patients presenting to our emergency department between May 1, 2014, and August 15, 2016, using International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Edition and Internation Classification of Disease, Tenth Edition diagnosis codes for priapism...

BACKGROUND: Urethral stricture may disturb both micturition and semen emission. Urethroplasty, despite the restoration of a proper urethral patency, may not eliminate the accompanying ejaculatory dysfunction (EjD). AIM: To investigate the relationship among urethral stricture, urethroplasty, and ejaculatory function. METHODS: For the systematic review, the authors followed the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis statement...

BACKGROUND: MicroRNAs (miRs) were found to be dysregulated in erectile dysfunction (ED) related to aging, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and vasculogenic abnormalities. However, miR expression in ED after radical prostatectomy (RP) is not known. AIM: To detect abnormal miR expression in post-RP ED and analyze target genes and pathways. METHODS: 16 Sprague Dawley rats were divided into bilateral cavernous nerve crush (BCNC) and control groups. 4 weeks after surgery, erectile function and histological change in the corpus cavernosum were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Erectile dysfunction (ED) may be common among diabetic men with depressive symptoms (DS), but its prevalence is still debated. AIM: To conduct a meta-analysis of the prevalence of ED in diabetic men with DS compared to those without DS, calculating the relative odds ratios (ORs) and 95% CIs. METHODS: PubMed, MEDLINE, Embase, and Web of Science were searched up to January 2018. All the studies assessing the risk of ED among diabetic men having DS were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Throughout the last decade there has been a growing interest in the biomechanical differences between inflatable penile prostheses (IPPs) and their significance with regard to the patient experience. AIM: To present our findings assessing the biomechanical properties of IPPs with and without rear tip extenders (RTEs). METHODS: This is a biomechanical study of the 3 most commonly used IPPs (AMS CX, AMS LGX, and Coloplast Titan) as assessed by column compression, modified cantilever deflection, and 3-point bending methods...

BACKGROUND: Different scales exist for the assessment of sexual distress in men with prostate cancer (PCa); however, these measures narrowly focus on distress associated with sexual function. AIM: To validate and examine the psychometric properties of the Sexual Distress Scale (SDS) and Sexual Distress Scale-Revised (SDS-R), which were recently validated for use within men, in samples of sexually functional and sexually dysfunctional men with PCa. METHODS: A sample of 538 men (with and without PCa and with and without sexual dysfunction) were used to examine the psychometric properties of the SDS...

BACKGROUND: The Institute of Medicine Report and Department of Health and Human Services Healthy People 2020 Initiative have called for steps to address health disparities facing sexual minorities. AIM: We sought to characterize the practice patterns of sexual health specialists as they relate to men who have sex with men (MSM). METHODS: Surveys were electronically mailed to 696 members of the Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA)...
