The best surgical approach for varicocoelectomy is still unknown, however more and more physicians favour subinguinal microsurgery. The aim of this study was to find whether microsurgical approach is superior to laparoscopic varicocoelectomy in terms of pregnancy rate, fertility potential, endocrinological function of the testis, erectile dysfunction and testicle volume increase. It was a prospective, non-masked, parallel-group randomized controlled trial with one to one allocation. It was conducted at authors' institution and designed as per protocol study...

OBJECTIVES: A low second-to-fourth (2D:4D) digit ratio, a retrospective marker of high prenatal androgens, predicts increased investment in costly sexually dimorphic traits in men in some studies, although results are mixed. Here we test the hypothesis that the association of low 2D:4D ratios with increased muscularity and decreased adiposity depends on current testosterone (T) levels, such that digit ratio will be a particularly strong predictor of outcomes among men exhibiting a mating-effort-oriented endocrinological profile (high T)...

Vitamin D is a versatile hormone with several functions beyond its well-established role in maintenance of skeletal health and calcium homeostasis. The effects of vitamin D are mediated by the vitamin D receptor, which is expressed together with the vitamin D metabolizing enzymes in the reproductive tissues. The reproductive organs are therefore responsive to and able to metabolize vitamin D locally. The exact role remains to be clarified but several studies have suggested a link between vitamin D and production/release of reproductive hormones into circulation, which will be the main focus of this review...

Thyroid hormones (THs) play important roles in vertebrates such as the control of the metabolism, development and seasonality. Given the pleiotropic effects of thyroid disorders (developmental delay, mood disorder, tachycardia, etc), THs signaling is highly investigated, specially using mammalian models. In addition, the critical role of TH in controlling frog metamorphosis has led to the use of Xenopus as another prominent model to study THs action. Nevertheless, animals regarded as non-model species can also improve our understanding of THs signaling...

BACKGROUND: Substantial evidence reveals tolerability and co-morbid disease resolution after bariatric surgery; however, few physicians refer morbidly obese patients for bariatric consultation. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate morbidly obese patient access to bariatric surgical consultation. SETTING: A multidisciplinary, private, bariatric center of excellence. METHODS: Patient surveyed in person regarding preconsultation co-morbidities, physician discussion and support for bariatric surgery, and physician referral practices...

Nivolumab, an anti-programmed death-1 antibody, is a breakthrough treatment for several malignancies. Its specific adverse effects caused by autoimmunity are termed immune-related adverse events, which involve several endocrine dysfunctions. Herein, we report two cases of isolated adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) deficiency induced by nivolumab for the treatment of metastatic malignant melanoma. Case 1 was a 39-year-old man and Case 2 was a 50-year-old woman, both of whom presented with progressive melanoma...

PURPOSE: Congenital hypopituitarism is caused by mutations in pituitary transcription factors involved in the development of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis. Mutation frequencies of genes involved in congenital hypopituitarism are extremely low and vary substantially between ethnicities. This study was undertaken to compare the clinical, endocrinological, and radiological features of patients with an isolated growth hormone deficiency (IGHD) or combined pituitary hormone deficiency (CPHD)...

Exertional (exercise-induced) rhabdomyolysis is a potentially life threatening condition that has been the subject of research, intense discussion, and media attention. The causes of rhabdomyolysis are numerous and can include direct muscle injury, unaccustomed exercise, ischemia, extreme temperatures, electrolyte abnormalities, endocrinologic conditions, genetic disorders, autoimmune disorders, infections, drugs, toxins, and venoms. The objective of this article is to review the literature on exertional rhabdomyolysis, identify precipitating factors, and examine the role of the dietary supplement creatine monohydrate...

Literature is limited regarding the medical and cosmetic dermatologic issues pertinent to transgender patients and the reasons why 19 transgender individuals seek care from dermatologists. Clinical management of this population has historically been limited to 20 mental health providers, endocrinologists, and select surgeons with expertise in sex reassignment surgery. The impact of hormonal 21 therapy on transgender skin has been well documented in endocrinology journals, but is underrepresented in dermatology 22 literature...

Background. Although an increasing burden of endocrine disorders is recorded worldwide, the greatest increase is occurring in developing countries. However, the spectrum of these disorders is not well described in most developing countries. Objective. The objective of this study was to profile the frequency of endocrine disorders and their basic demographic characteristics in an endocrine outpatient clinic in Kumasi, central Ghana. Methods. A retrospective review was conducted on endocrine disorders seen over a five-year period between January 2011 and December 2015 at the outpatient endocrine clinic of Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital...

Context: The transgender population continues to face challenges in accessing appropriate health care. Adequate training of endocrinologists in this area is a priority. Objectives: 1) Assess the status of transgender healthcare education in United States (US) endocrinology fellowship training programs, and 2) assess knowledge and practice of transgender health amongst practicing US endocrinologists. Design: Mayo Clinic and Endocrine Society developed and administered a web-based anonymous survey to 104 endocrinology fellowship program directors (PDs) and 6,992 US MD members of Endocrine Society...

Context: Acromegaly is a systemic disease characterized by persistent bone pathology and excess cardiovascular mortality. Despite multiple concomitant risk factors, atherosclerosis does not seem to be accelerated in acromegaly. Objective: To compare the levels of circulating myeloid calcifying cells (MCCs), which promote ectopic calcification and inhibit angiogenesis, in individuals with or without acromegaly. Design: Cross-sectional case-control study...

Context: Daily injections are required for growth hormone replacement therapy, which may cause low compliance as a result of inconvenience and distress in patients. Objective: CTP-modified human growth hormone (MOD-4023) is developed for once-a-week dosing regimen in GH-deficient (GHD) adults and children. The present trial was a safety and dose-finding study for weekly MOD-4023 in GHD children. Design: a multi-center, open-label, randomized, controlled Phase 2 study in children with GHD, evaluating the safety, tolerability, PK/PD and efficacy of 3 different weekly MOD-4023 doses, compared to daily r-hGH...
