S K Yarovoi, R A Khromov, V N Shipovskii
The article describes a case of successful managenent of arterial priapism in a patient with a stab wound in the perianal area. Timely performed angiography revealed a pathological connection between a. Uretralis sinistra and spongy body. Disruption of the abnormal shunt resulted in immediate relief of erection with further preservation of erectile function. At the 3 and 6 months follow-up visits there were no signs of cavernous fibrosis or erectile dysfunction. The authors analyze the entire sequence of events in the management of the case, identify shortcomings, determine their significance and consider their prevention...

Chunhui Liu, David S Lopez, Ming Chen, Run Wang
BACKGROUND: Penile rehabilitation, defined as the use of any drug or device at or after radical prostatectomy to maximize erectile function recovery, is commonly used for post-prostatectomy erectile dysfunction; however, conflicting results based on each study make it difficult to give a recommendation for clinical practice. AIM: To clarify the effect of oral phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5is), vacuum erection devices, intracorporeal injection therapy, and the combination of these treatments on penile rehabilitation...

Late onset hypogonadism (LOH) is the most commonly used term to indicate the age-dependent reduction of testosterone. Sexual dysfunction represents the most important determinant for medical consultation and the most specific symptoms associated with LOH. In particular, data from the European Male Ageing Study (EMAS), a population-based survey on more than 3400 subjects, recognized that a triad of sexual symptoms (low libido and reduced spontaneous and sex-related erections) is the only syndromic association with decreased testosterone levels...

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common sexual problem and has been attracting growing interest from the field of medicine. The pharmaceutical industry works together with medical associations to popularize the theme, emphasizing individual enhancement and medication, besides reinforcing an idea of a male sexuality defined by the ability to have an erection and penetrate. Patients worried about erection problems search for general practitioners (GPs), frequently without a clear complaint, and a comprehensive primary health care (PHC) must be capable of dealing with these issues considering medicalization and disease mongering...

Sexual dysfunction is a poorly understood condition that affects up to one-third of men around the world. Existing treatments that target the periphery do not work for all men. Previous studies have shown that central melanocortins, which are released by pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) neurons in the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus, can lead to male erection and increased libido. Several studies specifically implicate the melanocortin 4 receptor (MC4R) in the central control of sexual function, but the specific neural circuitry involved is unknown...

BACKGROUND: Evaluation of sexual disorders among persons receiving methadone replacement therapy is of great importance, because these problems may lead to non-compliance and relapse. This study aimed to estimate the effect of methadone maintenance therapy (MMT) on sexual function among addicted Iranian men using met-analysis.

INTRODUCTION: Obesity is a potential risk factor for erectile dysfunction (ED). MicroRNAs (miRNAs) regulate the expression of genes involved in various pathophysiologic processes. AIM: To identify the miRNA profile in the corpus cavernosum (CC) of obese rats with ED and elucidate the potential function of miRNA in the pathogenesis of ED. METHODS: Obesity was induced in rats by a high-fat diet. After the erectile function test, experimental animals were divided into two groups: obese rats with ED and obese rats with normal erectile function...

OBJECTIVE: To use systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the efficacy of low-energy extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT) for erectile dysfunction (ED) was undertaken with a meta-analysis to identify the efficacy of the treatment modality. METHODS: A comprehensive search of the PubMed, Cochrane Register and Embase databases to March 2017 was performed for randomized controlled trials reporting on patients with ED treated with LI- ESWT. The International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) and the Erection Hardness Score (EHS) were the most commonly used tools to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of LI-ESWT...

INTRODUCTION: Priapism is defined as a full or partial erection lasting longer than 4 hours after sexual stimulation and orgasm or unrelated to sexual stimulation. The main goal of priapism management is to resolve the episode immediately to preserve erectile function and penile length. Corporal smooth muscle necrosis is likely to have already occurred, and medically refractory erectile dysfunction is expected in patients with a protracted episode. Penile prosthesis implantation (PPI) in the early or late phase of priapism can restore erectile function...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to detect sexual impairment in male hepatitis C virus patients and determine its associations. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 61 male hepatitis C virus patients were enrolled in this cross-sectional study. Sexual functioning was assessed using the International Index of Erectile Function.

AIMS: The aim of this study was to assess erection quality with sildenafil vs placebo and adverse events (AEs) according to age (≤45, 46-55 and ≥56 years) in 997 men with erectile dysfunction (ED) using pooled data from four randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, flexible-dose trials. METHODS: The trials included 6- to 10-week treatment periods. The starting sildenafil dose was 50 mg, taken ~1 hour before sexual activity but not more than once daily, with subsequent adjustment to 100 or 25 mg based on efficacy and safety...

Managing patients with erectile dysfunction (ED) who failed to respond to phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5is) is a challenging task. Recently, low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT) was reported to improve ED by enhancing perfusion of the penis. The current study was performed to evaluate whether combined treatment with LI-ESWT and PDE5is can restore erectile function in patients who failed to respond to PDE5is alone. This was an open-label single-arm prospective study. ED patients with an erection hardness score (EHS) ≦2 under a maximal dosage of PDE5is were enrolled...

PURPOSE: To compare the recovery of erections and potency following the transection of accessory pudendal arteries (APAs) in men undergoing robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) compared with men with normal vascular anatomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 880 consecutive patients who underwent RARP from January 1, 2007 to December 31, 2014 were included with prospectively collected data in cross-sectional analysis. Erectile function (EF) was assessed preoperatively and postoperatively at 3, 6, 12, and 24 months using the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF)-5, a percent erection fullness compared to preoperative status, and two Expanded Prostate Cancer Index (EPIC) questions: (1) are erections firm enough for penetration and (2) are they satisfactory? RESULTS: Two hundred thirty-one (33...
