Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common problem in older men and occurs with even greater frequency following the treatment of pelvic malignancies. Inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) implantation is a safe and effective form of definitive ED treatment for those men who fail more conservative measures, and it can be used with similar outcomes in men following cancer therapy. Although many of these men remain dissatisfied with other therapeutic options for ED, IPPs are underutilized in this population. This review will discuss the current practice patterns, outcomes and nuances to surgical technique regarding the use of IPPs in patients with ED following cancer therapy...

The inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) is the gold standard surgical treatment for medical refractory erectile dysfunction (ED). While the modern IPP has enjoyed high satisfaction rates as a product of its continued innovation, reliability, and performance, patient dissatisfaction can still occur. IPP implantation restores physiologic function with cosmetic and psychological consequences, both of which place inherent emphasis on preoperative counseling and expectation management. This review aims to highlight the complex nature of such counseling and provide practitioners with a roadmap to navigate the landscape...

Inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) has been around since the 1970's as a durable and one-time cure for erectile dysfunction (ED). For the past 40 years, many changes have been made to make the device better and currently IPP boasts a high percentage of long-term patient satisfaction. The next paradigm shift in IPP treatment for ED is upon us. Funding for ED related medications and devices has been a hot topic in health policy over the last 10 years. This suggests that the device must improve and patient advocacy and education must increase for IPP to remain as a viable solution for ED...

Erectile dysfunction (ED) has long been described by physicians and patients, with treatments for ED proposed starting in the 8th century BC. In the last 50 years, however, there have been many advances in medical and surgical management of ED, notably the introduction of the inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) in 1973 and phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5Is) in 1998. Here we review the evolution of the IPP from 1973 through the current day. The 3-piece device was first described in 1973 by Dr. F. Brantley Scott, who helped found American Medical Systems (AMS) to market and sell the device...

REVIEW

The inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) is an effective erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment modality when oral and injectable therapies fail to achieve satisfactory results. Unfortunately, infection of the prosthetic remains a dreaded complication occurring in a small fraction of patients despite advances in device design and surgical techniques. With a prosthetic infection or erosion, classic management has included removal of all hardware with thorough irrigation of the infected spaces. To prevent corporal fibrosis and scarring that can make a subsequent implant challenging, an immediate salvage procedure with a three-piece prosthesis has been advocated when possible...

In the last decade, many attempts have been made to use gene expression profiles to identify prognostic genes for various types of cancer. Previous studies evaluating the prognostic value of genes suffered by failing to solve the critical problem of classifying patients into different risk groups based on specific gene expression threshold levels. Here, we present a novel method, called iterative patient partitioning (IPP), which was inspired by the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve, is based on the log-rank test and overcomes the threshold decision problem...

We investigated suppression of the slow growth of an Escherichia coli ispA null mutant lacking farnesyl diphosphate (FPP) synthase (i.e. IspA) by plasmids carrying prenyl diphosphate synthase genes. The growth rates of ispA mutant-transformants harboring a medium-copy number plasmid that carries ispA or ispB were almost the same as that of the wild-type strain. Although the level of FPP in the transformant with the ispA plasmid was almost the same as that in the wild-type strain, the level in the transformant with the ispB plasmid was as low as that in the ispA mutant...

Farnesyl diphosphate synthase (FPPS) is an enzyme from the class of short chain (E)-prenyltransferases that catalyzes the condensation of two molecules of isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP, C5) with dimethylallyl diphosphate (DMAPP, C5) to generate the C15 product FPP. In insects, FPPS plays a key role in the biosynthesis of the morphogenetic and gonadotropic "juvenile hormone" (JH). Lepidopteran genomes encode two very distinct FPPS paralogs, one of which ("type-II") is expressed almost exclusively in the JH-producing glands, the corpora allata...

REVIEW
Nina Capone Singleton
From a speech-language pathology perspective, there is a gap in interprofessional education/practice (IPE/IPP) that leads to a wait-and-see approach with late talkers (LT). In line with the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's Strategic Pathway to Excellence, this article attempts to bridge the gap, reexamining the panoptic view that most LT "catch up" to their peers. The LT who persist with language disorder should not be overlooked. Late talking can impact socialization and school readiness, and can place some toddlers at risk for life-long disability...

Inter-professional practice (IPP), necessary in today's healthcare environment, should be guided and practiced through inter-professional education (IPE). Within the context of an effective IPE program, collaborative medical professionals must be cognizant of the demands of patients' integrated care, organize a collaborative inter-professional team, and achieve the objectives of patient-centered care. However, the many challenges of IPE include insufficient understanding of inter-professional care, occupational culture-related boundary issues, lack of a college education, and insufficient support from academic and medical institutions...

AIMS: Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) contributes to insulin secretion after meals. Though Hispanics have increased risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus, it is unknown if impaired GLP-1 secretion contributes to this risk. We therefore studied plasma GLP-1 secretion and action in Hispanic adults. METHODS: Hispanic (H; n=31) and non-Hispanic (nH; n=15) participants underwent an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). All participants were categorized by glucose tolerance into four groups: normal glucose tolerant non-Hispanic (NGT-nH; n = 15), normal glucose tolerant Hispanic (NGT-H; n = 12), impaired glucose tolerant Hispanic (IGT-H; n = 11), or newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes mellitus, Hispanic (T2D-H; n = 8)...
