PURPOSE: We studied the use of magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of penile fracture. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 1997 and 2012, fifteen patients (age range 17-48 years, mean age 37 years) with suspected penile fracture underwent MRI examinations. Ten patients were injured during sexual intercourse, whereas four patients were traumatized by non-physiological bending of the penis during self manupilation, one patient was traumatized falling from the bed...

The body is the place where the dimensions of space, time, subjectivity and objectivity meet and interact. These dimensions are considered with regard to eating, sleeping and sex within the couple. When a disfunctioning appears in one of these three fundamental aspects, it is, in general, treated alone. Eating, sleeping and sex are, on the contrary, interdependant, and in this perspective, a therapeutical intervention on one of these vital functions can lead to an amelioration of another one of them.

The neurons associated with the left first sacral sympathetic trunk ganglion (STG S1), an autonomic ganglion particularly concerned in the innervation of the smooth and striated musculature associated with pelvic organs, were identified in the pig, using the non-trans-synaptic fluorescent retrograde neuronal tracer Fast Blue. The labelled neurons were located mostly ipsilaterally, in the intermediolateral nucleus of the spinal cord segments T10-L5, in the sympathetic trunk ganglia L3-Co1, in the caudal mesenteric ganglia, in the pelvic ganglia, and in the spinal ganglia T13-S4...

Gonadotropins, the action of which is mediated at the level of their gonadal receptors, play a key role in sexual development, reproductive functions and in metabolism. The involvement of the gonadotropins and their receptor genotypes on reproductive function are widely studied. A large number of gonadotropins and their receptors gene polymorphisms are known, but the only one considerable as a clear, absolute genetic marker of reproductive features or disfunctions is the FSHR Asn680Ser polymorphism, since it modulates ovarian response to FSH...

INTRODUCTION: Overactive Bladder (OAB) and Urge Urinary Incontinence (UUI) are both debilitating and bothersome conditions. OAB negatively impact on women’s quality of life affecting their own ability and personal relationships. Our aim has been to evaluate how OAB and UUI affect women’s sexual function and the possible role of antimuscarinic drugs in improving their sexual condition. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 2009 to May 2010, 58 women diagnosed with OAB filled in the self-administered questionnaires: Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI), the short form of Urogenital Distress Inventory (UDI-6) and the Incontinence Impact Questionnaire (IIQ-7)...

The interactions between the nervous, endocrine and immune systems require a complex communication network. The central nervous system (CNS) affects the immune system through endocrine, paracrine and neuronal mechanisms. Evidence that this bidirectional communication plays a vital role in the regulation of physiological homeostatic mechanisms while a disfunction of the neuroendocrineimmune balance favors the susceptibility to a number of diseases is derived largely by animal models but also by an increasing number of clinical studies in different fields, including endocrinology, reproductive physiology, pediatrics, oncology, neurology and psychiatry...

There is increasing evidence of causal relation between benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and erectile dysfunction (ED). BPH appears to have a negative impact on sexual function. Drugs commonly used for the treatment of BPH (i.e. alphablockers, 5-alpha reductase inhibitors) may cause retrograde ejaculation, ED and reduced libido. Physicians should be aware of these adverse events and inform their patients accordingly. Conversely, phosphodiestease-5-inhibitors may have a beneficial effect on BPH symptoms.

UNLABELLED: AIMS. To compare, in a "real world" setting, the efficacy and tolerability of two initial duloxetine starting doses: 30 mg once daily (q.d.) for 1 week, followed by escalation to 60 mg q.d. versus 60 mg q.d. without titolation, evaluating expecially the effects on sexual dysfunction. METHODS: The sample is constituted by outpatients meeting diagnostic criteria for mild-severe (HAMD17 > or =24 and CGI-S > or =4) Major Depressive Episode as defined by DSM-IV-TR (Diagnostic and Statistic Manual for Mental Disorder, Fourth Edition-Text Revision), based on the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV-TR (Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview, MINI)...

AIM: In the management of the chronic complications caused by diabetes mellitus, an important role is played to andrological problematics, which require a specialistic evaluation combined in order to concretely contribute to the improvement of quality of life of such patients. The erectile disfunction in the diabetic patient notoriously correlates with the main cardiometabolics risk factors, and recently it has been pointed out how after chronic use of inhibitors of the phospodiesterase-enzyme-5 (PDE5-I) it is possible to improve the vascular response profile, evaluated through ecolor doppler (ECD) penile dynamic...

Prostatitis is one of the most common illnesses in men aged < or = 50 with different clinical presentation such as pelvic pain, Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms or sexual disfunction. Problems in the diagnosis and classification of this condition, however, have delayed epidemiologic research and consequently, our understanding of the natural history of prostatitis is limited. Nowadays, the Meares & Stamey test (M&S Test) in bacterial prostatitis is considered the most important test for diagnosis of bacterial prostatitis, even if several problems have been identified in running the M&S Test...

Dehydroepiandrosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone-sulfate are precursors of androgens and estrogens, support the gonadal sexual steroid production. The levels of dehydroepiandrosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone-sulfate are maximal between the ages of 20 and 30 years, then start a decline of 2% per year, leaving a residual of 10-20% of the peak production by the eight decade of life. The age-associated decrease may lead to osteoporosis, deterioration of lipid-metabolism, cardiovascular diseases and second type of diabetes mellitus...

Investigations were carried out in 2 women of 17 and 18 years with primary amenorrhea, normal external female genitalia and delayed secondary sexual characteristics, for the reasons for delayed puberty. The 17-year-old patient had reduced values of FSH, LH and oestradiol. This disturbance in the hypothalamo-hypophysary axis was caused by hydrocephalus. Menarche occurred following drainage of the fluid. The 18-year-old patient had raised values ofFSH and LH and a lowered oestradiol value. There was therefore a disfunction existing at ovarian level, which appeared to be caused by an XX-gonadal dysgenesis...

This research discusses the issues of erectile disfunction in diabetes, which constitute not only a medical but, what results from its spread, also a social problem. Diabetes as a social disease causes many metabolic disorders, dysfunction of many organs, including erectile dysfunction. Because of the fact that there are so many disorders in organs, people who suffer from diabetes should be especially carefully treated in view of metabolism. Erectile dysfunctions in diabetes have definitely an organic background: connected with vessels, neurologic, endocrinologic and psychological functions...

Sexual dysfunction is defined as a disturbance in the sexual response cycle or as a pain with sexual intercourse. The prevalence of sexual dysfunctions is approximately 40% in the female population. The disorders affecting sexual desire are the most common sexual dysfunctions encountered in women. Whereas recent studies have demonstrated clear influences of hormones on sexual dysfunctions, no pharmacological treatment has been approved for that indication. We will review here several pharmacological treatment strategies proposed in case of sexual dysfunction, underlying the fact that they are effective only to treat specific cases of sexual disorders but cannot replace the sex therapies...

Psychotropic drugs affect the regulatory mechanisms of different neuroendocrine axis. This chapter reviews the interactions between psychotropic drugs and prolactin, the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis and the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. Hyperprolactinemia can cause galactorrhea, amenorrhea, sexual disfunction, impaired spermatogenesis and increased risk for osteoporosis and fractures. Atypical antipsychotics cause less hyperprolactinemia than conventional antipsychotics. Lithium has important effects on thyroid function...

The aim of this paper is to answer the question: do we still need a permanent colostomy and present the quality of life of patients operated on for rectal cancer. A comparative analysis of patients after abdomino-perineal resection of the rectum vs. patients after low anterior resection of the rectum with preservation of sphincters is presented. When assessing the quality of life of patients, the following issues were considered: a) function of the whole organism and general condition (physical function); b) psychological well-being (psychological function); c) professional activity, relations with relatives and friends, leisure activities (social function) and d) intimate relations (sexual function)...
