Epalrestat, an aldose reductase inhibitor (ARI), was adopted to improve the function of peripheral nerves in diabetic patients. The aim of this study was to investigate whether epalrestat could restore the erectile function of diabetic erectile dysfunction using a rat model. From June 2016, 24 rats were given streptozocin (STZ) to induce the diabetic rat model, and epalrestat was administered to ten diabetic erectile dysfunction (DED) rats. Intracavernous pressure (ICP) and mean systemic arterial pressure (MAP), levels of aldose reductase (AR), nerve growth factor (NGF), neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS), α-smooth muscle antigen (α-SMA), and von Willebrand factor (vWF) in the corpus cavernosum were analyzed...

Advanced Peyronie's disease (PD) with severe penile curvature requires grafting following plaque incision or partial plaque excision. So far, the ideal graft material has not been identified although various grafts have been studied. In this first matched pair analysis we compared the outcome after grafting with small intestinal submucosa (SIS) and self-adhesive collagen fleece (CF). We retrospectively identified 43 patients after SIS grafting with complete follow-up data sets to be eligible for the present study...

Depression and sleep problems are highly prevalent disorders that are often comorbid with other medical disorders. We evaluated the prevalence and associations of these conditions in patients presenting to a Men's Health clinic. In this retrospective study, 124 patients presenting to a Men's Health clinic completed three urological questionnaires (International Index of Erectile Function [IIEF-5], International Prostate Symptom Score [IPSS], and Androgen Deficiency in Aging Males [ADAM]); and four non-urological questionnaires (Patient Health Questionnaire for depression [PHQ-9], STOP-BANG Sleep Apnea [OSA STOP-BANG], Insomnia Severity Index [ISI], and Epworth Sleepiness Scale [ESS])...

Yafi et al. have conducted a study that will be of great interest to the lay community and also of import to practicing urologists who routinely encounter patients with concerns about the appearance of their phallus [1]. In one study 14% of men expressed dissatisfaction with their genitals with flaccid penile length being the most common source of dissatisfaction [2]. The concerns of such men tend to be the perception that their penis is small, or at least smaller than the penises of other men.

OBJECTIVES: Vasectomy is a popular and effective male surgical contraceptive method. Different techniques have been proposed to reduce failure rates and complications. In this study, we sought to compare vas deferens occlusion rates using both standard occlusion techniques and LigaSure (LSVS) for vasectomy. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A total of nine patients underwent open radical retropubic prostatectomy at our institution. During the procedure, a total of 125 fresh vas deferens samples were obtained and divided into four groups as follows: Group 1: ligation (n = 22), Group 2; ligation and electrocauterization (n = 18), Group 3; 5 mm LSVS (n = 44), Group 4; 10 mm LSVS (n = 41)...

OBJECTIVE: Only a single study investigated erectile dysfunction (ED) among patients with chronic brucellosis without including a control group. Our study objective was to determine the prevalence of ED among patients with chronic brucellosis compared to normal subjects, and to explore the predictors of ED. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We included 93 chronic brucellosis patients and 92 subjects as a control, from June 2013 to August 2017. Chronic brucellosis was diagnosed based on persistent symptoms for ≥1 year with positive immunoglobulin G antibody titer (≥1:160) by standard tube agglutination test; the mean duration was 21 ± 6...

We investigated the effect of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) on glycemic control and sexual function among hypogonadal men with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). From the EARTH study, 86 patients (47 in the TRT and 39 in the non-TRT groups) with a diagnosis of T2DM were extracted. We collected data on waist circumference, body mass index, body fat volume, free testosterone, hemoglobin (Hb), fasting blood sugar, and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) at baseline and after 12 months. Aging Male Symptoms (AMS) score and International Prostate Symptom Score were obtained...

Neuronal and endothelial nitric oxide synthases (nNOS and eNOS respectively) play major roles in generating the nitric oxide bioactivity necessary for erectile function. S-nitrosylation has been shown to regulate NOS activity. The presence of S-nitrosylated NOS in the penis and the impact of NOS S-nitrosylation/denitrosylation on erectile function were examined. S-nitrosylated forms of NOS were identified by biotin-switch assay followed by western blot analysis. Erectile function in S-nitrosoglutathione reductase deficient (GSNO+/- ) and null (GSNO-/- ) mice were assessed by continuous cavernous nerve electrical stimulation (CCNES)...

Low-intensity shock wave therapy (LiST) improves erectile function in patients with erectile dysfunction (ED), probably by promoting angiogenesis as suggested by studies on animals with comorbidities as disease associated ED models. We aim to investigate the effects of LiST on erectile tissue of healthy, naturally aged rats. Twelve naturally aged male rats were randomized into two groups: control group (n = 6) and LiST-treatment group (n = 6). Young rats (8 weeks) (n = 6) was also used as control...

Collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH) was approved for the treatment of Peyronie's disease (PD) in December of 2013. Recently, further research has supported its use. The aim of this study was to objectively evaluate the effects of CCH on penile curvature associated with Peyronie's disease at our high volume institution. Since the approval of CCH for PD, 45 men have undergone between 1 and 4 treatment cycles (mean 3.13, standard deviation (SD) = 0.87) at our institution. Primary as well as secondary curvature, if any, was measured before beginning therapy and after each cycle of therapy...

OBJECTIVES: To study the efficacy of Low intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (Li- ESWT) for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) in kidney transplanted men. METHODS: Twenty men (mean age = 53.7 years) were selected. This was a double-blinded, prospective, randomized, sham-controlled trial. The ESWT protocol was based in a 2 treatment sessions per week for 3 weeks. The sham treatment was performed using the same device replacing the effective probe for one that emits zero energy...

Penile duplex ultrasound (PDU), combined with pharmacologic stimulation of erection, is the gold standard for the evaluation of multiple penile conditions. A 30-question electronic survey was distributed to members of the International Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM). The survey assessed the variability in current PDU practice patterns, technique, and interpretation. Chi-square test was used to determine the association between categorical variables. Approximately 9.5% of all 1996 current ISSM members completed the survey...

The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence and correlates of erectile dysfunction (ED) in a sample of Chinese type 2 diabetic men. Between October 2016 and April 2017, male patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus treated in our diabetes outpatient clinic were recruited in this study. The participants were asked to complete a short version of the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF-5), which was a validated and self-administered questionnaire for the diagnosis and grading of ED severity. All patients screened for erectile function also underwent detailed physical examination, and interviewed for demographic and medical history...

OBJECTIVES: Our objective was to elucidate the discussion points of circumcision on social media (SoMe) by looking at the Twitter activity. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twitter searched for #circumcision hashtag via www.tweetarchivist.com , www.twitonomy.com , www.symplur.com . Total tweet numbers, most influencers, top users were documented. Tweets including female circumcision were excluded. The contents of the tweets were classified into four subgroups (medical, religious, social, and political) by two independent reviewers...

The Questionnaire of Cognitive Schema Activation in Sexual Context (QCSASC) is a validated and widespread used measure to assess the self-schemas elicited during sexual negative events in both men and women. The current study aimed to test the psychometric characteristics of the Italian version of the QCSASC in both heterosexual men and women. After linguistic translation, the psychometric properties (internal consistency, construct and discriminant validity) were evaluated in 1038 participants (435 men and 603 women, 767 healthy and 271 clinicals complaining of sexual problems)...
