INTRODUCTION: Vulvo-vaginal atrophy affects the daily lives of most post-menopausal women. We know that ospemifene intake can induce vaginal epithelial improvements within a few weeks; however, direct evidence of the effects of ospemifene on the human vulva and on connective tissue of both the vagina and vulva are lacking. AIM: To evaluate the changes induced by ospemifene on epithelium thickness, glycogen content proliferation index, collagen content, and type I/III collagen ratio in vulvar and vaginal tissue of post-menopausal women...

BACKGROUND: Men often experience deterioration of sexual function after the use of α-blockers and 5-α reductase inhibitors for the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) attributed to benign prostatic hyperplasia. Thus, an alternative treatment with water vapor thermal therapy (Rezūm System, Boston Scientific, Marlborough, MA, USA) which is an efficacious minimally invasive surgical treatment that preserves sexual function was examined. AIM: To compare sexual function over 3 years after continuous daily treatment with pharmaceutical agents in the Medical Therapy of Prostatic Symptoms (MTOPS) study vs a single thermal therapy procedure (Rezūm study) in subjects with matched criteria for LUTS severity and prostate size...

INTRODUCTION: Historically, contra-indications for immediate salvage of an infected penile prosthesis have included purulence on the device, purulent infections in diabetic patients, and severe diabetes. These clinical principles are from the 1990s to early 2000s and based on limited retrospective series or expert opinion. Since the publication of these contra-indications there have been improvements in device design, surgical technique, corporal washout protocols, and perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis that allow us to re-evaluate whether we can broaden the criteria for immediate salvage of an infected penile prosthesis...
