INTRODUCTION With the advances in penile vibrator stimulation (PVS), most spinal cord injured (SCI) men can self-ejaculate. Oral midodrine may further increase ejaculation success, while maintaining autonomy. Since most SCI men attempt ejaculation for sexual rather than reproductive purposes, self-ejaculation should be emphasized and sensations explored. (More)
BACKGROUND Spontaneous activity originating from the spinal cord has been sporadically reported in humans. OBJECTIVES Investigation of such rhythmic activity of the trunk and legs in a 49-year-old male patient who had a complete severance of the spinal cord at the fifth thoracic vertebra. METHODS A multichannel electromyography (EMG) study was performed(More)
Fatty acid composition of the adipose tissue of six carnivorous mammalian species (European otter Lutra lutra, American mink Mustela vison, European Mink Mustela lutreola, European polecat Mustela putorius, stone marten Martes foina and European wild cat Felis silvestris) was studied. These species forage to differing degrees in aquatic and terrestrial food(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of midodrine in the treatment of anejaculation in men with spinal cord injury (SCI). STUDY DESIGN Prospective, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled pilot study. METHOD Men with anejaculation associated with SCI (level of injury above T10) of more than 1 year in duration were(More)
The value of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in living kidney donors screening is unclear. A recently published web-based application derived from large cohorts, but not living donors, calculates the probability of a measured GFR (mGFR) lower than a determined threshold. Our objectives were to validate the clinical utility of this tool in a(More)
