This study aimed to investigate the long-term outcomes of the surgical combination of revascularization and penile corrective techniques after having obtained promising preliminary results from a previous study. Between 2008 and 2015, the combined treatment was undertaken for 60 patients with Peyronie's disease and erectile dysfunction. A preoperative urological evaluation was performed with penile color Doppler ultrasonography, electromyography of the corpus cavernosum and cavernosometry. All the patients completed 15-item and 5-item IIEFs preoperatively and at postoperative follow-up...

The cause of Peyronie's disease (PD) is still not completely understood. The objective of this study, therefore, was to analyze the histological and biochemical alterations that occur after the instillation of blood in the tunica albuginea (TA) of rats with an emphasis on the remodeling process of ECM. Thirty male Wistar rats were divided into 4 groups: two control groups with instillation of distilled water in TA followed by penectomy after 15 days or 45 days, respectively and two experimental groups with instillation of blood in TA followed by penectomy after 15 days or 45 days, respectively...

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) appears to be related to sexual dysfunction, especially if associated with obvious clinical and hormonal signs of hyperandrogenism. The objective of this study was to determine the correlation of PCOS and its hormonal and clinical parameters with sexual function. This prospective, cross-sectional study conducted on 18-45-year-old PCOS women (according to the Rotterdam criteria), who were referred to the Reproductive Endocrinology Research Center, Iran, was invited to participate from January 2012 to December 2015...

Low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) therapy has recently been proposed as a cause of ischemic priapism. The evidence, however, remains scarce, as there are very few published cases of LMWH-induced priapism to date. The implications of such events are significant as ischemic priapism is a medical emergency. In current clinical practice we are seeing a trend towards LMWH therapies replacing unfractionated heparin (UFH). As LMWH therapies continue to gain favor, we will potentially see more cases of LMWH-induced priapism...

The implantation of a penile prosthesis (PP) may be recommended in patients with severe erectile dysfunction (ED) who do not respond to conservative treatments. The aim of this study was to evaluate complications, as well as functional and quality of life outcomes following primary and secondary implantation of PP at a tertiary referral center. In this retrospective study, a total of 51 patients (41 patients with primary (PPP) and 10 with secondary PP (SPP)) were included. Patients and operative characteristics were recorded and complications were analyzed using the Clavien-Dindo classification...

Sociocultural prejudices and pressures may impair the mental health of bisexual people. We aim to evaluate psychological status according to sexual orientation in a sample of Italian university students, with specific attention to bisexuality and its frequency. Among a recruited sample of 551 university students, we found the following percentages for sexual orientation: heterosexuals 96.9% (n = 534), homosexuals 1.1% (n = 6), bisexuals 2% (n = 11). The cross-sectional analysis for psychological symptoms, with the Symptoms Check List-90 Revised (SCL-90-R), revealed that bisexual subjects have statistically significant higher scores on some symptomatic scales compared to heterosexuals...

No previous studies have investigated the prevalence of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) among patients with erectile dysfunction (ED) or its contribution to the development of high-grade ED through a process of chronic inflammation-induced atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of LTBI among patients with erectile dysfunction and to explore the contribution of LTBI to high-grade ED. For all the study sample, clinical evaluation, imaging studies, and laboratory investigations were provided...

The most important cause of erectile dysfunction (ED) among aging men is organic disease due to vascular disturbance that is often caused by atherosclerosis. Recently, studies have shown that atherosclerosis can manifest as an active inflammatory process rather than as passive vascular injury caused by lipid infiltration. Our study aimed to examine the association of ED with the neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and the platelet/lymphocyte ratio (PLR), both of which are markers of inflammation. Between December 2014 and May 2015, 101 male patients aged 40-70 years who were seen at our institute due to ED were included in this study...

Low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (LI-ESWT) is a novel treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED). Its ability to improve erectile function has been shown in patients with vasculogenic ED by many randomized-controlled trials against sham procedures. However, the role of LI-ESWT in ED caused by radical prostatectomy (RP) is still questionable because this type of ED was excluded from nearly all clinical studies; it has been investigated in only a few small single-arm trials. This review summarizes preclinical studies on mechanisms of action of LI-ESWT for ED and neurological diseases to explore the potential of this treatment for nerve-impaired ED after RP...

This is an observational transversal cohort study in which we aim to analyze the Brazilian penis length and compare the penis size of the men self-declared as white (SDW) or black (SDB) skin color. Subjects were asked for self-declare according to their skin color, after that they have been invited to participate in a semi-structured interview so as to have their perception evaluated regarding their penis size and their self-esteem as well. Eventually, their penis length was measured with an anthropometric ruler...

Accurate data regarding the size of the erect penis is of great importance to several disciplines working with male patients, but little data exists on the best technique to measure penile length. While some previous small studies have suggested good correlation between stretched penile length, others have shown significant variability. Penile girth has been less well studied, and little data exist on the possible errors induced by differing observers and different techniques. Much of the published data report penile length measured from the penopubic skin junction-to-glans tip (STT) rather than pubic bone-to-tip (BTT)...

Sexual dysfunction (SD) is common in men and women with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and is considered as an early marker for cardiovascular (CV) disease. We hypothesized that patients with SD have higher risk for vascular damage of the large arteries, accelerated vascular aging, and consequently higher CV mortality than other end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. In this study, the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) questionnaire and the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) questionnaire were applied in men and women, respectively...

About 25% of the world's adult population suffers from arterial hypertension with about 1.5 billion estimated to develop hypertension by 2025. Hypertensive patients have been reported to have a higher risk of developing diabetes and sexual dysfunction. Hypertension have been linked with lubricative and orgasmic difficulties in females, as wel as ED and vascular disease in men. Obesity has also been linked to ED in diabetic males as well as several aspects of female sexuality. Hypertension and obesity are closely related, each occurring in greater frequency with the other, it is only logical to think that comorbidities of obesity and hypertension could increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and SD...

The current therapy for penile fracture is immediate surgical repair, but sexual and psychosocial effects of the repair have been poorly investigated. We aimed to assess the impact of surgical correction of penile fracture on psychosocial status, sexual function, and erectile quality. Sixty-four patients classified into two subgroups according to follow-up: 2-24 months (Group 1), and longer than 24 months (Group 2), and 28 healthy men (Control group). The mean overall follow-up period was 39.1±32.7 months...

We evaluated the role of dopamine (DA) transporter gene polymorphism in lifelong premature ejaculation (LPE) and its role in determining the response to paroxetine and escitalopram. Eighty consecutive patients and controls were recruited. Sixty of them suffered from LPE. They were divided into two equal groups. One group received paroxetine 20 mg daily for 3 months and the other one received ecistalopram 20 mg daily for 3 months. Their wives were instructed to measure the intra-vaginal ejaculation latency time using stopwatch...

Tunica albuginea plication (TAP) surgery for Peyronie's disease (PD) is classically described using nonabsorbable suture. Many patients are aware of nodularity at the suture sites (50-88%), and some find them painful (10-33%). We explore whether limiting permanent sutures provides a durable correction of curve and report the incidence of bothersome nodules. Beginning in 2007, we modified our TAP procedure to limit the use of permanent sutures. We reviewed all patients who underwent TAP procedures from 2007 to 2014 at our institution...

Sexual dysfunction (SD) has long been known to affect a significant number of people worldwide with serious implications and limitations on sexual expression and fulfillment. This may affect the sexual quality of life (SQoL) of individuals and their partners. A cross-sectional study was conducted among diabetic patients and their partners who visited the Tema General Hospital. A total of 130 and 116 diabetic males and females and their partners were interviewed. Male and female diabetic participants and partners were evaluated using the Golombuk Rust Inventory for Sexual Satisfaction-Male (GRISS-M)/SQoL-M and GRISS-Female/SQoL-F, respectively...

The surgical treatment of benign prostatic obstruction is changing over the time, thanks the increase evidence about the successful role of laser techniques in this surgery. We aimed to compare prostatic GreenLight photovaporization (PVP) to bipolar transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) with regard to lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) improvement through the evaluation of BPH6. We enrolled 220 consecutive subjects affected by LUTS. We performed a propensity score matching using prostate volume, peak flow and International Prostate Symptoms Score (IPSS)...
