Sildenafil enhances the nitric oxide-cGMP pathway of erection, which is claimed to have a role in nocturnal penile tumescence and rigidity (NPTR). This study aimed to find whether RigiScan can predict the response to sildenafil among erectile dysfunction (ED) patients and to find which RigiScan parameter produces the best prediction. Medical records of 172 ED patients were revised regarding their full sexual history, standard andrology examination, NPTR monitoring by the RigiScan device, and the degree of response to sildenafil...

Introduction: Finasteride (FIN) is known as type II 5α-reductase inhibitor, which has been approved for the treatment and prevention of androgenetic alopecia. Administration of FIN by oral route has led to undesirable systemic side effects that include mood disturbance, gynecomastia, decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, and ejaculation disorder. The aim was to improve FIN delivery through skin layers and hair follicles that could possibly reduce its major side effects resulting from long-term oral administration for the treatment and prevention of male pattern baldness...

Prostate cancer is a common malignancy seen worldwide. The incidence has risen in recent decades, mainly fuelled by more widespread use of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing, although prostate cancer mortality rates have remained relatively static over that time period. A man's risk of prostate cancer is affected by his age and family history of the disease. Men with prostate cancer generally present symptomatically in primary care settings, although some diagnoses are made in asymptomatic men undergoing opportunistic PSA screening...

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is considered a sentinel marker for poor general men's health status. Severe ED has been associated with poor response to phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5Is) therapy. We sought to assess the association of multiple PDE5Is prescription with the overall patients' health status. Socio-demographic and clinical variables from 939 consecutive white-European, heterosexual, sexually-active men seeking medical help for ED at same tertiary-referral academic outpatient clinic were analyzed...

Pharmacological treatment of BPS is often considered the first therapeutic approach for patients who experience progression in lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).α1-adrenoceptor antagonists are often chosen as the first line pharmacological treatment, due to their rapid onset of action, as well as their significant impact on LUTS and Qmax and post-void residual. Adverse effects appear to be low.With larger prostate volume and LUTS, long term treatment with 5α-reductase inhibitors (5ARIs) significantly improves LUTS and post-void residual...

Obesity is a major public health issue worldwide and is frequently associated with erectile dysfunction (ED). Both conditions may share an internal pathologic environment, also known as common soil. Their main pathophysiologic processes are oxidative stress, inflammation, and resultant insulin and leptin resistance. Moreover, the severity of ED is correlated with comorbid medical conditions, including obesity. Therefore, amelioration of these comorbidities may increase the efficacy of ED treatment with phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitors, the first-line medication for patients with ED...

INTRODUCTION: Glans penis augmentation (GPA) using hyaluronic acid (HA) gel has been developed for treating premature ejaculation (PE) with penile hypersensitivity. The injected HA filler creates a barrier that reduces the tactile stimuli to the hypersensitive dorsal nerve. Although the HA filler is biodegradable and is believed to not cause permanent loss of sexual function, the current International Society for Sexual Medicine guideline for PE does not recommend this procedure owing to concerns regarding sexual dysfunction...
